        Using longitudinal data on labour law in France, Germany, Japan, Sweden, the
        United Kingdom and the United States over the period 1970 2010, the authors
        estimate the impact of labour regulation on unemployment and the labour share
        of national income. Their dynamic panel data analysis distinguishes between the
        short-run and long-run effects of regulatory change. They find that worker-protec-
        tive labour laws in general have no consistent relationship to unemployment but
        are positively correlated with labour's share of national income. Laws specifically
        relating to working time and employee representation are found to have beneficial
        effects on both efficiency and distribution thus proxied.
        KEYWORDS: UNEMPLOYMENT, LABOUR LEGISLATION, WORKERS RIGHTS, EQUAL RIGHTS,

        The author argues that the June 2012 challenge by the ILO Employers' group to
        the hitherto generally accepted view regarding the right to strike under the Free-
        dom of Association Convention, No. 87 is at odds with the historical understand-
        ing of the framework in which the Convention is embedded. She demonstrates how
        the ILO constituents have consistently recognized that there is a positive right to
        strike, which is inextricably linked to - and an inevitable corollary of - the right
        to freedom of association. The article also analyses the relative roles of the ILO
        supervisory bodies in this regard.
        KEYWORDS: RIGHT TO STRIKE, FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION, ROLE OF ILO, INTERNATIONAL
        LABOUR STANDARDS, COMMENT.
