Summary There is no longer any doubt that markets in goods, services and capital are operating on a global scale. However, it now seems the market for labour is also moving towards globalization. If this is the case, can nation-states, workers and employers maintain effective labour regulation? Should the World Trade Organization adopt core labour standards developed by the International Labour Organization? Towards a Fair Global Labour Market addresses these questions from legal, economic, social and cultural perspectives. Arguing that free trade should not become coercive trade, Towards a Fair Global Labour Market will be essential reading for those interested in human rights issues, labour law, international affairs, economics and development.
