BOOK LAUNCH – PHILOSOPHICAL FOUNDATIONS OF LABOUR LAW
In this event we will mark the publication of the book Philosophical Foundations of Labour Law (co-edited by Hugh Collins, Gillian Lester and Virginia Mantouvalou) at the UCL Faculty of Laws.
The book is based on an international academic conference, the Bentham House Conference, that we hosted at UCL in June 2016.
It brings together leading scholars in law and philosophy from around the world to examine the philosophical foundations of labour law. It addresses the political and theoretical challenges posed by globalization, marketization, and technological disruption, and explores why and how the law regulates and ought to regulate work and relations in the workplace on the basis of concepts such as human dignity, freedom and the prohibition of exploitation.
