8 January 2019
The book brings together leading scholars in law and philosophy to examine the philosophical foundations of labour law.
A new book on the Philosophical Foundations of Labour Law, co-edited by Professor Virginia Mantouvalou (Professor of Human Rights and Labour Law at UCL Laws), with Professor Hugh Collins (Vinerian Professor of English Law at Oxford University) and Professor Gillian Lester (Dean and the Lucy G. Moses Professor of Law at Columbia University), has been published by Oxford University Press. The book is based on the Bentham House Conference, an international academic conference hosted at UCL in June 2016.
Philosophical Foundations of Labour Law 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 globalisation, marketisation, 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.
Further details of the book are available on the Oxford University Press website.
