About the European Labour Law Journal
The European Labour Law Journal is set to increase and foster the debate on the future of labour law in Europe and to increase the knowledge of labour law.
It aims to better define the role of labour law in Europe and in light of a European Social Model which can provide solutions for the challenges facing the EU and its Member States, requiring a good combination of economic market performance and quality of life, good work and social justice.
In order to contribute to this, the Journal is set to study European labour law in its national, EU and international contexts. Current and future developments in Europe and the world necessitate a fundamental investigation of labour law in the EU and its Member States, and of the basic principles of labour law in Europe.
The Journal fills an existing gap in the academic community. Although there are many national and some internationally oriented labour law journals, none of them specifically addresses the EU as a central focus of attention, including developments of labour law in the EU at the level of the Member States.
The European Labour Law Journal aims to be a leading academic journal in the area of European labour law and social policy. European labour law is viewed in a wide sense. It includes labour law at the European Union level as well as labour law in the Member States. It also pays attention to developments of labour law at a more global level and its relevance for the EU and its Member States. These various levels are seen as intrinsically connected and mutually interdependent.
The scope of the Journal is confined with:
EU labour law and social policy taken in its internal and external dimension;
The interaction between EU labour law and Member States’ labour law, including relevant national developments of labour law;
Developments of labour law in doctrine and policy at a global level and their relevance for labour law in Europe;
Cross-disciplinary developments relating to social policy and industrial relations and their relevance for labour law in Europe.
Attention is paid to developments at the level of policy, legislation, case law as well as academic doctrine.
