Mission and Communications

The Labour Law Research Network was set up in 2011 by research institutes/centers from all over the world dedicated to the study of labour law. Our goal is to advance research in labour law, and specifically to facilitate the dissemination of research work and encourage open discussion of scholarship and ideas in this field. All labour law scholars are welcome to join. The LLRN holds a Biennial Conference to facilitate presentation of academic scholarship in labour law along with discussion and debate over topical issues in the field.

In addition to our conference, the LLRN provides information about labour law-related activities to affiliated research centres and the public through this website, our Twitter account (@LabourLawRN) and a Monthly Update that we send to our Mailing List. During the 2015 LLRN Conference in Amsterdam, some labour law academics established a Facebook Group called Labour Law Research Network which continues to be active. You can request access to the Facebook Group from the administrators by clicking here.
