dc.description.abstract The recognition and protection of the right to strike have seen huge developments since the beginning of the twentieth century. The traditional basis upon which this right was based on the international arena and in national jurisdictions is one that views the right to strike as an essential tool in the hands of workers and their representative organizations to strengthen their bargaining power against employers, which means that the right to strike is one of economic and social rights enjoyed by humans in their capacity as workers. Yet, there are calls for widening the basis of recognition of this right to include appeal to civil liberties. This thesis discusses the validity and desirability of these proposals, and concludes by calling for the preservation and development of the traditional basis upon which international and national labour standards have built the right to strike. en
