REIMAGINING WORKERS' HUMAN RIGHTS: TRANSFORMATIVE
ORGANIZING FOR A SOCIALLY AWARE GLOBAL ECONOMY
      By D ean H ubbard  .............................................................   1

   This article illustrates a strategy to reconceptualize
   workers' rights activism    to  achieve  systematic
   transformation  of the   global political economy
   emphasizing the disproportionate toll of neo-liberal
   economics on women, poor people, and people of
   color. The first section demonstrates the way in which
   existing structures in international human rights law
   can work to provide a normative foundation to this
   goal. The second section emphasizes the essential next
   step toward reaching this transformation in what the

   which   global workers may     find  courage, and
   egalitarian, popular-democratic, systemic economic,
   and political transformation is possible.
