Abstract
[Excerpt] In the push for a global economy, ensuring human and worker rights is a major challenge. The race toward a global economy is outpacing the political development of global democracy. Globalization puts more and more pressure on democratic institutions and practices, thwarting democratic development, political stability and economic gains. Global economic development may produce immense wealth, but it does not guarantee that the wealth will be equitably distributed or that democracies will thrive. Strong trade unions and democratic governments that protect worker rights are necessary to achieve equity and lasting stability. Without these institutions, the workers who produce the wealth are left behind. Defenders of worker rights need accurate, timely information that they can use in their fight for global worker justice. Justice for All: A Guide to Worker Rights in the Global Economy provides that information.
