Harmonization of Labor Standards
This chapter analyzes international harmonization of labour standards, tracing its history from early efforts in the late 19th century in Europe to developments under the ILO (International Labour Organization) with a focus on the unique decision making procedure of the ILO and implementation mechanisms of the ILO Conventions and Recommendations. The chapter finally turns to efforts to include social clauses under the GATT, WTO and regional trade agreements, as well as to recent initiatives to raise labour standards by the private sector (Corporate Social Responsibility and the UN Global Compact).
