No one will deny that labour standards comprise a necessary framework for balanced economic and social development. Yet on a global level such balanced development has not occurred, despite the existence of a rigorous body of international labour law that has been active and growing for eighty years. The implementation of this law devolves upon states; yet many states have failed to honour it. If we are to take serious steps toward a remedy for this situation, there is no better place to start than a thorough, well-researched survey and analysis of existing international labour law - its sources, its content, its historical development, and an informed consideration of the barriers to its full effectiveness. This book is exactly such a resource. It provides in-depth interpretation of the crucial International Labour Organisation (ILO) instruments - Constitution, conventions, declarations, resolutions, and recommendations - as well as such other sources of law as the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and various model and actual corporate codes of conduct. Among the substantive areas of labour law covered in this book are the following: the relationship between international labour law and economic competition standards on industrial relations collective bargaining and dispute settlement procedures protection of trade unions prohibitions on enforced and child labour promotion of equal opportunity and treatment time and rest provisions wage determination and protection occupational health and safety provisions special issues on non-standard forms of employment foreign and migrant workers social security provisions maritime work The presentation demonstrates that these rules and standards, notwithstanding their much-maligned intrinsic legal force, do in fact offer invaluable benchmarks to governments, judiciaries, employers, and trade unions. The book's combination of detailed commentary and an overarching social policy will make it especially valuable to legislators, human resources managers, employers´ organizations, trade unions, jurists, and academics concerned with the role of work in our globalised social system. This second edition of the book by Jean-Michel Servais analyzes the potential of those standards in a globalized world, and the necessary evolution. It examines the actual implementation of those rules in the national context, comparing different experiences.

Well-known since its first edition for its lucid explanation of the important concepts affecting international commercial agreements in terms that a lawyer or business executive new to the field can understand and use - rather than the legal jargon of experts talking to other experts - this incomparable one-volume work provides basic, precise information on setting up and performing international trade transactions. Its focus reflects the reality of the day-to-day business of international trade, which is primarily an undertaking between two private businesses based on a contract drafted and negotiated between the two parties for performance by them with occasional third-party assistance. Reinforcing the book's concentration on the private dimensions of international trade, and more precisely on the contractual aspects of that trade, the Fourth Edition extends its coverage to the newest growing dimensions of the field, with new chapters on intellectual property, international electronic commerce, and online dispute resolution. the much-appreciated solid basic information on a wide variety of issues that people will encounter in putting together international commercial agreements is of course still here, and includes the following: ; specific guidance on drafting commercial agreements; background material on contract formation, including basic information on contract law; differences between international and domestic contracts; in-depth exploration of negotiation techniques to help smooth the negotiation process; detailed discussion of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation/conciliation as well as arbitration; drafting contracts to cover a wide variety of business relationships, such as sale of services, franchises, joint ventures, and licenses; regional differences; online dispute resolution; and emerging new trends in international commercial arrangements. The reader will find a substantial amount of information and discussion on international electronic commerce both in separate chapters and within chapters on more general topics. In its recognition that a business executive entering into an international commercial transaction is mainly interested in drafting an agreement that satisfies all of the parties and that will be performed as promised, this superb functional guide for negotiation, drafting and resolving disputes in international commercial agreements will immeasurably assist any lawyer or business executive to plan and carry out individual transactions even when that person is not interested in a full-blown understanding of the entire landscape of international contracts. Business executives who are not lawyers will find that the book gives them the understanding and perspective necessary to work effectively with the legal experts.
