Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

This advanced seminar examines the emerging field of transnational labour law, by addressing how transnational law has been theorized since Philip Jessup and Wilfred Jenks.  It will consider the transnational implications of labour law's specificity – setting the conditions under which people can temporarily sell their labour power in market relations.  It will centre the conditions necessary for democracy at work.  The topics include some of the most significant challenges facing the governance of labour, transnationally, and interrogate the role of international labour law and labour law actors in relation to each: slavery and the law, sustainable development and just transitions, corporate social responsibility and due diligence, labour migration, trade regulation, airline labour law, care work, and workplace equality.
