    The predominant and narrow view that development equates to growth in income, expansion of infrastructure and rise in the standard of living is no longer seen as comprehensive or adequate. The World is also coming to terms with the inadequacy of mere economic growth and is struggling to find a development paradigm that is pragmatic to implement while ensuring sustainability at the same time. This course is about exploring an alternate development paradigm that draws lessons and inspiration from success stories across the world. It is built on the capability approach that many development economists are increasingly subscribing to and will help the student understand how building human and social capital will result in economic consequences.

    This course examines international labor law in a world economy that is currently struggling to recover from COVID-19. Even before the pandemic, international labor law was strife with tensions. The International Labor Organization (ILO) is the organization mandated to design and supervise international labor rights; yet, governments have plucked some of those rights out of the ILO system of governance and have dropped them into their own legal instruments, including their bilateral and multilateral trade agreements that are backed with economic sanctions. In addition, other United Nations (UN) human rights agencies risk clashing with the ILO, given the intersection between their human rights and the ILO’s fundamental labor rights. As governments and various UN agencies assign their own meanings and sanctions to international labor law, we are left to question the ILO’s contemporary role and purpose in the world of work. Against the backdrop of sharp competition among countries and firms, global pandemic, and mandate creeps, our readings and discussions will discuss the complex fragmentation of international labor law and human rights. We will also examine the unique challenges confronting women, migrant workers, domestic workers, and LGBQT+ workers. A prior course in a related topic may be helpful but is not required.
