Migrant Labour Law

Migrant Labour Law

Unfolding Justice at Work in Free Markets

By Giovanni Di Lieto


In our globalised world, we constantly talk about the need to future-proof our skills and jobs to remain competitive in an increasingly mobile society and economy. However, labour migration policies, institutions and safeguards are lagging way behind. This study endeavours to explore possible solutions in order to address the issues and needs of a mobilised global workforce. The analysis aims at making the theoretical leap from a citizenship and border-based framework of industrial relations to a more holistic concept of borderless labour mobility that prioritises global interests.
