Temporary Labour Migration in the Global Era

The Regulatory Challenges

Edited by: Joanna Howe, Rosemary Owens

In the global era, controversies abound over temporary labour migration. However labour migration has not previously been subjected to a sustained socio-legal analysis on a comparative basis, critiquing the underpinning concepts conventionally accepted as fundamental in this area. This collection of essays aims to fill that void. Complex regulatory challenges arise from temporary labour migration. This collection examines these challenges and the extent to which temporary labour migration programs can be ethical, equitable, and efficacious, and so deliver decent work for workers. While the tendency for migration law to divide labour law's worker-protective mission has been observed before, the authors included in this collection seek, not only to interrogate why and how this is so, but to go further in examining the implications and effects of a wide range of regulatory mechanisms on temporary labour migration.
