This volume includes an article-by-article analysis of key instruments in European and international labour law. It provides an invaluable resource for lawyers and scholars, offering insightful guidance on questions relating to the interpretation of legal texts; the case-law of the relevant international courts and commissions; and international scientific analysis of these legal instruments. The editors assembled an international team of more than 70 scientific specialists on international labour law instruments from a wide range of countries, most of them scholars in universities and other research institutes. The book covers the whole field of labour law, ie fundamental questions, worker's mobility, equality law, individual labour law, collective labour law and dispute resolution. Editors and authors have focused on European Union law, including all of the general labour law directives and regulations, as well as instruments with a wider scope insofar as they cover labour law, eg in the field of private international law or data protection. Furthermore, the book comprises analysis of the most relevant provisions of the European Social Charter and all the general labour law conventions from the ILO.
