Judges of the World, United? Collective Aspects of the Right to Work in Regional Human Rights Systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to compare the approach taken to the right to work in the international and regional human rights systems. It focuses on the collective dimension of the right to work, ie the rights to unionise, to take collective action and to consultation. The paper will examine the degree to which the international courts and committees expressly rely on each other’s jurisprudence and standard setting; and consider whether there is convergence in terms of protection. In particular the paper will consider whether and how successfully the European Convention on Human Rights, a text traditionally associated with civil and political rights of a largely individualistic nature, has come to address some of the collective aspects of the right to work.
