Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The purpose of this course is twofold. First, to identify the diverse components of international employment and labour law, the institutions, the claims and the methods for advancing social protection to workers world-wide. This inquiry spans beyond traditional instruments that are associated with labour law, and includes trade law, private international law, international human rights and corporate social responsibility. It further seeks to embed the study of legal instruments in the broader economic and sociological debates on globalisation. The second goal is to critically assess how international developments affect domestic labour law and our perception of the ethical and economic values that underscore this body of law.
Course Objectives:
I. To understand the debates about globalisation
II. To embed legal dilemmas in social and economic context
III. To test our moral intuitions about dilemmas of global justice
IV. To piece together the various components of the loose body of law that we designate as international labour law.
V. To start from the local premises of labour law we are familiar with and to test them in the move from the national to the international
