Abstract

This chapter explores the role of international law in the governance of globalization, with special attention to the contribution of international labour standards. Following a contextual overview, my perspectives comprise three aspects. I first address the current legal landscape of globalization, which some might call "bad news". I then turn to the potential role that law and values play in a fair governance of globalization, perhaps the "good news". Finally, I consider some of the new directions for the role of international law in globalizaion - what might become, in time, "tomorrow's news".
