The book Manfred Weiss. A Legal Scholar without Borders. Selected Writings and Some Reflections on the Future of Labour Law (ADAPT University Press, 2022) is intended to acknowledge Manfred Weiss’ contribution to labour law. Prof. Weiss’ work has inspired generations of scholars, thanks to his approach to comparative analysis and to the practical implications this research methodology has had in the world of work.
This volume collects some of the most significant works by Manfred Weiss. They are preceded by an interview made by Michele Tiraboschi to Prof. Weiss about the origins of the German and European culture of work. It is argued that, in considering the uncertain scenario resulting from globalisation and the economic crisis, it is necessary to review labour protection, without moving away from the fundamental principles of labour law.
This book can be purchased on the most popular online sales platforms, and the proceeds will be used to fund scholarships for ADAPT’s School of Higher Education.
