About this Journal
- International Union Rights
International Union Rights is the journal of the International Centre for Trade Union Rights, an international organisation founded in 1987 that brings together a global network of expertise on international law, trade union rights, human rights, and industrial relations in order to defend, extend, and raise awareness of trade union rights and their violations worldwide. IUR focuses on labour law and the rights to form and join trade unions and carries articles dealing with all aspects of the right to carry out trade union activities, as well as violations, restrictions and impediments to trade union rights and the civil and human rights of trade unionists. IUR aims at increasing international awareness and understanding of key issues around the general theme of trade union rights, often with an emphasis on legal issues, and with a strong regard for covering geographic diversity. IUR is an essential source of reference for trade union officials and technical staff, particularly in legal, research and international departments. It carried news, articles and reports of relevance for lawyers, particularly in the fields of labour law and human rights. IUR will further appeal to academics, particularly those specialising in human rights and industrial relations. The journal also covers topics that concern regulatory bodies, and will prove a valuable resource to institutional libraries. IUR will have relevance and appeal for union members and all who wish to gain a perspective on the world of international trade union rights.
