Virginia Mantouvalou is a Reader in Human Rights and Labour Law, and Co-Director of the Institute for Human Rights at University College London (UCL).
Virginia Mantouvalou has assembled a remarkable collection of essays on the 'right to work' (RTW). The provenance, content, efficacy, future prospects and very existence of RTW are contested by many of her distinguished contributors. -- H W Arthurs * The Modern Law Review * ...this book provides some deep insights into the thousand faces of the right to work in a number of jurisdictions...The book makes a great contribution to the analysis of this right. -- Erika Kovacs * European Journal of Social Security * ...a fascinating and multi-faceted discourse on the nature of work and the meaning of rights....This slim but complex and weighty book will be an excellent selection for academic libraries supporting advanced or interdisciplinary study in labour law, worker's rights, or human rights - particularly its international aspects. -- Kim Nayyer * Canadian Law Library * This book has important implications for workers' rights and human rights separately- and workers' rights together. -- James A. Gross * Comparative Labor Law and Policy Journal * Indeed, the contributions seem to suggest that rather than being conceived as an endpoint in terms of a clear and sharply defined legal instrument, the right to work is better seen as a way to raise discussion about many underlying issues for enhancing labour protection. -- BENJAMIN MAK * Industrial Law Journal *
