2015 (English)In: Migration, precarity, and global governance: challenges and opportunities for labour / [ed] Schierup, Carl-Ulrik; Munck, Ronaldo; Likić-Brborić, Branka; Neergaard, Anders, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2015, 1, 223-244 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this chapter Branka Likić-Brborić addresses the emerging global governance of migration. She scrutinizes the structuring of human and labour rights discourses and contingencies for their institutionalisation and implementation by discussing their prospects for the promotion of global social justice. Issues of accountability and contingencies for the implementation of labour and human rights as migrants’ rights are discussed in the wider context of the existing global governance architecture. The chapter questions assumptions that setting up a workable model for codification and institutionalisation of labour standards, human rights and migrants’ rights could be left to a currently asymmetric global governance regime or to a variety of codes of corporate social responsibility. Global and regional trade union confederations and other civil society organizations have an essential role in repositioning a rights-based approach to migration, labour standards and development onto the terrain of a just globalisation.
