Ever since its constitution the ILO has developed and maintained a system of labour standards in order to create decent work all over the world. With the globalisation of the economy multinationals have gained an important position in furthering these labour standards throughout their value chains. From a regulatory point of view this development has resulted in a panoply of law and law-like initiatives within the global space in order to implement the labour standards. Much is already known about these initiatives from an individual and isolated perspective. Yet, little is known about their interactions in the global space. Whereas the concept of global space acknowledges the coexistence of different regulatory forms serving different roles, the concept of hybrid structures acknowledges the fact that these regulations interact in several configurations. The aim of this contribution is to map the main regulatory initiatives, to analyse their different roles in the global space of labour standards and to analyse in which configurations they interact. The findings of this analysis provide a more advanced and comprehensive understanding of the regulation of labour standards on the global level.
