Summary
"This book is one of the first studies in the new field of the sociology of human rights, and it centres its analysis on labour rights. Such rights are of critical importance in this field, work being the defining aspect of many people's lives and a central concern of sociology." "The principal aims of this study are to identify the aspects of established human rights practice that make the global enforcement of human rights as they relate to labour currently so problematic and to propose practical solutions to these problems. It evaluates developments within human rights discourse in the UN, the WTO and a diverse array of countries, including the UK, the US, China, France, Sweden, Australia, Japan, Argentina, Brazil, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore." "This book will be of interest to those in the fields of labour law, sociology, industrial relations, human rights, and international law."--BOOK JACKET
