Are efforts to protect workers' rights compatible with the forces of globalization? How can minimum standards designed to protect labour rights be implemented in a world in which national labour law is more and more at the mercy of international forces beyond its control? The chapters in this volume argue that international agreements and institutions are of central importance if labour rights are to be protected in a globalized economy. This book explores some of the options that are open to governments, civil society, and the labour movement in the years ahead.
