International ConferenceTHE VALUE OF THE POSITIONS OF THE INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS BODIES FOR NATIONAL LABOUR LAW Venue: Agerola, Napoli 22-23 June 2023
International labour law (ILL) might be efficient only in case if the national actors are aware of it and are ready to implement it. The ILO standards and the Human rights treaties are the key pillars of ILL. While the impact of the former upon members of the ILO is traced in the activities of ILO monitoring bodies and in numerous academic papers, the impact of the latter rather remains in shadow. The present call for papers is an attempt to gather researchers who have traced the impact of intentional human rights bodies on national jurisprudence or legislation, considered the difference in the national and international approaches to balancing exercises when labour rights (or a human right realized at work) are to be balanced with the employer’s rights or interests, or the State’s ones.
In particular, the topics of workplace privacy, religious rights at work, the approach to discrimination and its justification are of interest. Also, the impact of international bodies on public policies in the field of forced labour, employment and collective labour law policies, and struggle with harassment at work, are very welcome.
