About the Author

Edited by Janice R. Bellace, Samuel Blank Professor of Legal Studies, University of Pennsylvania, US and Beryl ter Haar, Professor and Head of the Centre for International and European Labour Law Studies (CIELLS), University of Warsaw, Poland and Endowed Professor of European and Comparative Labour Law, University of Groningen, the Netherlands


'This timely collection offers a comprehensive study of the interaction between human rights and labour protection, a topic given additional impetus from the impact of economic globalisation on labour creating the need to find new ways for protecting the rights and conditions of increasingly precarious workers worldwide. Including an extensive range of country-based studies, covering all the major legal families, international developments and thought-provoking analytical papers, this book provides a critically balanced and highly informative contribution to the topic.'
--Peter Muchlinski, SOAS, University of London, UK'Labour law and human rights law often follow separate paths and academics rarely engage with one another notwithstanding that the two fields are highly interrelated. This excellent edited volume bridges this gap and makes an important contribution to current debates on the intersection between labour law and human rights law. This is especially important in a world witnessing crucial transformations in the world of work. It is a must read for all scholars involved in research on labour rights.'
--Axel Marx, University of Leuven, Belgium
