The Handbook takes a broad view on the concept and thereby succeeds in bringing forward a holistic approach to secession, which approach is to be privileged in modern-day international scholarship.’ – Ineta Ziemele, Judge, CJEU, former Judge of the ECtHR and Latvian Constitutional Court Dec 2022 c 432 pp Hardback 978 1 78897 174 4 c £190.00 / c $275.00 eBook • Elgaronline Research Handbooks in International Law series Race, Gender and Contemporary International Labor Migration Regimes 21st-Century Coolies? Edited by Leticia Saucedo, University of California Davis School of Law and Robyn Magalit Rodriguez, University of California, Davis, US Migrant workers around the world are subject to exploitative labor practices that give employers extraordinary bargaining power. This book brings together researchers, practitioners and advocates who explore the many ways that contracted migrant workers are rendered vulnerable in the workplace. In this book, the term ‘21st-century coolie’ is deployed as a heuristic that foregrounds the deeply unequal structures shaping the transnational flows of short-term, migrant workers. The term ‘coolie’ harkens back to the labor arrangements of earlier centuries that involved conscripted labor, indentured servitude and contract labor across national borders. Like those of past centuries, today’s ‘coolies’ are subject to legal constraints inside and outside the employment relationship that force them into subjugated positions within the workplace.
