Abstract

PIL issues are conspicuously often interwoven with a number of heated, topical socio-legal debates, see for example the debate on transnational corporate social responsibility, the debate on posting of employees from Eastern to Western Europe, the debate on residency and social-security entitlements of foreigners based on family relationships. The question arises what position PIL should take in the forces at play and to what extent PIL can or should still adopt a “neutral” position.
