The Yearbook of Comparative Labour Law Scholarship 2014 brings together a wide range of cutting-edge research and analysis on labour and employment law themes from around the world, chosen from the pages of the member journals of the International Association of Labour Law Journals. A collaborative project of that Association and the International Society of Labour and Social Security Law, this edition of the Yearbook — the inaugural volume in an annual series — spans contributions from eleven countries across five continents. The contributions deal with such diverse subjects as labour trafficking in China, the impact of austerity measures on labour law systems within the EU, so-called "right to work" initiatives in Canada, freedom of movement for migrant workers in the ASEAN states, recent trajectories in the framework of Australia’s labour law, and many others. Written by renowned scholars in the field, the papers in the Yearbook reflect the critical and growing importance of comparative and international perspectives on labour and employment law in an era of globalization.
