Abstract

Over roughly the last ten years, there has been an explosion of scholarship on transnational labour law, as commentators attempt to come to terms with the shifting labour law paradigm in the new economy. Most of the work has filled law review pages. Fortunately, Sir Bob Hepple has led the way in Labour Laws and Global Trade by producing a well-written and engaging book. The format weaves together the existing scholarship and produces a forward-looking account of regulatory directions. Hepple's work crosses the permeable borders of domestic and transnational law, standard setting and national implementation (including law reform), and the labour rights/human rights divide. For these reasons, Labour Law and Global Trade sets a high standard for future transborder labour law scholarship.

Keywords: Transnational Labour Law, Labour Rights, Human Rights, ILO, OECD, Bilateral and Regional Agreements
