New Publications: Philosophical Foundations of Labour Law (OUP, 2018)
Hugh Collins, Gillian Lester and Virginia Mantouvalou (eds), Philosophical Foundations of Labour Law (OUP, 2018)
This new publication brings together leading scholars in law and philosophy from around the world to examine the philosophical foundations of labour law. It addresses the political and theoretical challenges posed by globalization, marketization, and technological disruption. The book explores why and how the law regulates and ought to regulate work and relations in the workplace. And it examines the extent to which labour law should be shaped by concepts such as human rights, dignity, freedom, and the respect for the equality of persons.
