The course covers the corpus of international social law proclaiming the fundamental rights of workers, emanating from the legal orders of the United Nations, the International Labour Organization and the Council of Europe (European Convention on Human Rights and the European Social Charter). In addition to the institutional aspects necessary to understand the issues at stake (history, institutions, methods of control and constraint), the course will examine how these international instruments deal with certain problems, both in the field of labor law and social well as the fundamental rights underpinning these problems.

A compendium with a course outline and documents is available on moodle.
