Introduction by the Editor-in-Chief


National laws, regulations and case law concerning work and the workplace -
and for EU members, EU labor law - are of critical importance to labor lawyers
and scholars. As international labor law becomes increasingly important, The
Hague  Institute for Global Justice and Leiden University have launched the
Social Justice Expertise Center, now home to the International Labor Rights
Case Law (ILaRC) Journal, published by BRILL |NIJHOFF.
   The role of international treaties, conventions, declarations, accords and
agreements  concerning labor rights is growing in jurisprudence. Decades of
work in this field has resulted in the international labor guidelines produced
by the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the Council  of Europe.
Trade agreements between  States and numerous  codes of conduct on corpo-
rate social responsibility signed by corporations and industries have also added
to this body of law. Overall, a huge variety of texts exist that are relevant to the
practice of labor law, and rapid globalization means practitioners must be
aware of developments so as to better advise their clients.
   There is currently no international labor law journal which focuses specifi-
cally on the five core international labor standards: (i) The right to organize
and bargain collectively; (2) The right to strike; (3) The prohibition of child
labor and forced labor; (4) Anti-discrimination rules; and (5) International
rules and regulations concerning health and safety at the workplace.
   ILaRC endeavors to fill this niche by including the most recent cases and lead-
ing interpretations of international labor norms and regulations on these core
standards. The cases will include, for instance, interpretation of ILO Conventions
by various ILO Committees as well as international cases from international and
national courts, such as the European Court of Human Rights and the Inter-
American  Court of Human Rights, and from bodies such as the OECD.
   Each issue will contain relevant extracts from decisions, and outline their
relevance for international labor law practice, thus providing an invaluable
addition to the toolbox of labor lawyers, corporate counsel and consultants
from legal systems around the world.
