This volume aims to generate debate beyond the scope of previous literature relating to the justificatory basis of labour standards, so as to consider alternative ways of understanding their function. In so doing, it considers what this means for the governance of labour markets, whether at local, national, regional, or international levels. It also challenges mainstream assumptions relating to ‘sustainable development’. This introductory chapter first discusses the links between labour standards and development. An overview of the subsequent chapters is then presented.

Keywords:   labour standards, labour markets, sustainable development
