International Law of Human Rights and precarious Work

Focus: Law

The course aims at providing the students with a glance at the international system of human rights with focus on the world of work. We will be looking into the interpretation and application of fundamental labour rights within the international, regional, integration and domestic law and try to assess if fundamental labour rights are, indeed, treated as human rights by courts and legislators and, at the end of the theoretical program, the students will have the opportunity to try the new acquired knowledge in practice by examining examples of austerity-driven laws
