Course-focused and comprehensive, the ‘Textbook on’ series provides an accessible overview of the key areas on the law curriculum. This chapter examines the right to work in international human rights law. It discusses the right to just and favourable conditions of work and remuneration; and the right to equal pay for equal work. The chapter highlights the role of the International Labour Organization in setting the standard for worker protection, and the contributions of the Social Charters of the Council of Europe in providing evidence of the change in such standards over the years.
