"Do core labour standards exist in today's global economy? If so, what are they? And most important how effective are they?" "In this book two labour law scholars answer these questions in a definitive manner. In detail they demonstrate that, although insufficiently legally binding instruments governing employment and labour exist beyond the national level, a significant body of international soft law has developed that does in fact carry great weight. Blanpain and Colucci identity four major sources of this soft law - the UN Global Compact of 1999, the ILO Tripartite Declaration of Principles, the North American Agreement on Labour Cooperation and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises - and show how the principles these instruments enunciate act as a countervailing power to the international economic decision-making of multinational corporations." "The authors cite relevant cases and highlight emerging trends in this important area of labour law. Annexes reprint all four of the instruments. The Globalization of Labour Standards will be welcomed by all sectors of the labour and employment law community as a fully realized analysis of what is currently available to those who would like to ensure economic and social progress in a world dominated by multinational corporations."--BOOK JACKET.
