Research in the Department of Labour Law





The Department of Labour Law

Labour law concerns the legal relationship between employer and employee and between the collective parties in the labour market. The subject is of great social consequence and is continuously developing as a result of new legislation and case law. The Department of Labour Law mainly researches the development of international labour law – Community law especially – and its interaction with Swedish and Nordic labour law and employment. The purpose of this activity is to generate knowledge of the substance of labour law and an understanding of how it evolves. Another objective is the encouragement of co-operation and interchange of ideas between researchers, social partners, national authorities and other interested parties in this field, through the Nordic bulletin EU & arbetsrätt, the web portal Forum for Labour Law Research and open seminars.
