ILRIC 4344

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

Examines labor rights and labor standards in a world economy regulated by bilateral and multilateral trade agreements, in a context of sharp competition among countries and firms. Readings and discussions focus on the intersections of labor, human rights, and international trade law and policy in this new global economic context. A prior course in a related topic may be helpful but is not required-the first classes are meant to establish a foundation in each area. While the role of law is a unifying theme, the course is more policy-oriented than legalistic. After the introductory classes on labor rights, human rights, and trade, the focus turns to a series of topics that reflect the links between labor rights and trade, followed by thematic treatment of migrant workers, women workers, and child labor.
