Publication is the heart and soul of scholarly research. This section highlights work that members of the UWC Faculty of Law are publishing in the labour law 4.0 niche. Many the publications are in peer-reviewed journals or chapters in edited volumes; others are books, project reports or media articles. All reflect the breadth and depth of our social and intellectual engagement.
We share this growing collection of publication links, abstracts, excerpts and, where possible, full-text documents, for the benefit of scholars, researchers, jurists, practitioners, students, activists, policy-makers and -shapers, and the general public.

Du Toit, Darcy (2016). ‘Recognition of the right to strike (terms and conditions apply)’. In Roger Blanpain & Frank Hendrickx (eds) and Darcy du Toit (Guest editor) Labour Law and Social Progress: Holding the line or shifting boundaries? Bulletin of Comparative Labour Relations 92. Kluwer Law International
Labour Law and Social Progress: Holding the Line or Shifting the Boundaries? is a collection of incisive essays that focus on the emerging global paradigm shift in labour and employment relations. For forty years the international watchword has been deregulation of labour law and of social security. Now, however, the rise in unemployment and lack of employment security, the dizzying inequality gulf, and the environmental disasters and mass migrations caused by this deregulation are generating an impetus that defines social justice no longer merely in terms of the equitable distribution of resources but also? and often primarily? in terms of the just recognition of persons. This book recognizes that the growing interdependence among people demands that labour rights are understood as an aspect of human rights, and thus envisaged at international level. This volume of BCLR is based on a selection of papers presented at the 21st World Congress of the International Society for Labour and Social Security Law in Cape Town in 2015.
