Towards a rule-based global labour market

This concluding chapter is divided into three sections. Section 9.1 explores mechanisms and policy instruments related to strengthening international labour standards by linking them in some meaningful way to trade regulations. Section 9.2 considers other policies outside the trade-labour linkage to promote international labour standards. Section 9.3 brings together some of the themes of the book and, in light of the policy proposals, attempts to draw some conclusions, including a ‘Global Action Plan’ to promote a fairer global labour market.
