Abstract [en]

The Conservative government of Theresa May asserted that labour standards would be preserved post-Brexit. The Labour Party also privileged labour standards in its anti-austerity programme. The threat remains however that Brexit will provide an incentive to erode labour standards in a global ‘race to the bottom’ in a ‘Singapore scenario’.
