Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the issue of core labour rights, and their impact upon the international labour law regime. It then focuses on the following questions: What any account, critical or praiseworthy, of a "transformation" of the international labour law regime based on the concept of core labour rights must do is actually explicate that very idea. What is this idea? Is it conceptually coherent? Can that very idea bear the conceptual weight being placed upon it? And if normative conclusions are to be drawn about the transformation alleged, an exercise Alston so robustly takes part in, then we require a normative assessment of the new idea. And if conceptually coherent and normatively compelling, is the new idea useful in the real world? Will it change more than the law? These are the core questions about core labour rights and about the current state of the international labour law regime.

Keywords: Alston; Core Labour Rights; International Labour Organization (ILO)
