The aim of this book is to investigate the right to strike and the differences between the jurisprudence developed concerning the legitimate scope of industrial action. It considers how the justifications for industrial action could be balanced against grounds for its restriction and what kind of limitation could be regarded as appropriate. This introductory chapter introduces issues concerning the right to strike in the light of contemporary debates over ‘good governance’, which arises at both the national and international level. A governance framework provides a useful basis for examining not only the contours of the right to strike as it is presented as an international legal norm to national governments, but also the internal dynamics of transnational organisations which shape the content and communication of that norm.

Keywords:   right to strike, good governance, governance, legal norm
