Since the onset of globalization, protective labour legislation has been deeply eroded throughout the industrialized world. In its place we have a plethora of new employment phenomena such as flexible work time, temporary work services, decentralization of collective bargaining, private fee-charging employment placement services - a wide variety of arrangements in which employers and individual workers reach mutual agreement with little or no reliance on legal norms of government regulation. What are the dimensions and implications of this trend? And how should we go about ensuring the continuing effectiveness of labour law as an instrument of social ordering? These important questions drew a group of prominent labour law scholars from eight major developed countries to the Fifth Japan Institute of Labour (JIL) Comparative Labour Law Seminar in Tokyo in November 1998. Each participant presented papers and engaged in group discussion on the following topics: changes in labour market regulations, such as abolition of state-monopolized employment placement services and deregulation of fixed-term contracts; trends in individual labour relations, such as working hour flexibilization and expansion of derogation toward individual consent; and developments in collective labour relations, such as the movements from centralized bargaining to company- or plant-level bargaining and from trade unions to works councils. This book is the record of this seminar. Its analysis and conclusions should be useful to any practitioner, policymaker or academic interested in using available means to ensure the persistence of our commitment to high standards in labour relations. It is an integrated starting point from which to proceed toward a new labour law concept positively adapted to the socio-economic realities of the modern world.
Which political entities should the international community recognize as member states, with the rights and powers of statehood, and an entitlement to participate in formulating, adjudicating, and implementing international law? What criteria should it use, and are those criteria defensible? From Kosovo, Palestine, and Taiwan, to South Sudan, Scotland, South Ossetia, Abkhazia, and Catalonia, these questions continuously arise, and constantly challenge the international community for a consistent, principled stance. In response to this challenge, this book offers a social contract argument for a theory of international recognition - a normative theory of the criteria that states and international bodies should use to recognize political entities as member states of the international community. Regardless of whether political entities adequately respect human rights or practice democracy, it argues, we must recognize a critical mass of them to get international institutions working. Then we can add to it by recognizing secessionist entities that suffer from persistent, grave, and widespread human rights abuses by their government -- and, under certain conditions, minority nations within multinational states that seek independence. We must also recognize entities whose recognition would contribute to the economic development of the least well-off entities. Drawing on the social contract tradition, and developing a broadly Rawlsian view, A Law of Peoples for Recognizing States: Taking the Social Contract Seriously will both challenge and appeal to a broad readership in political philosophy, international law, and international relations.
Republican Principles in International Law considers the fundamental requirements of a just world order, as applied to public international law. The republican principles of deliberation, popular sovereignty and the public good first formed and justified the law of nations two centuries ago. They still clarify the most contested legal question and explain why people and states should obey international law. This book sets the standard for legitimate government, both within and beyond the jurisdiction of separate states and nations.
