The winner of the 2018 Marco Biagi Award is Giovanni Gaudio, Ph.D. researcher, University of Milan, Italy, with his paper entitled: “Adapting labour law to complex organisational settings of the enterprise.

Second Edition of the Yearbook of Comparative Labour Law Scholarship
In 2015, the IALLJ published a Yearbook of Comparative Labour Law Scholarship. The volume contained reproductions of the most typical, eye-catching, thoughtful or generally worthwhile contributions of IALLJ member journals. With the Second Edition, edited by Frank Hendrickx, the IALLJ wishes to repeat this exercise for contributions that have been made available after the first volume and which were published in 2014 in the member journals. The idea is not just to expose these contributions to a wider audience but also to evoke and grasp, more horizontally throughout our journals, how and what scholarship in labour law is emerging over time. Behind this lies an ambition to make a contribution to trend awareness and critical debate in the larger global community of labour law scholarship.
About the Association
The next annual meeting of the IALLJ will take place at the occasion of the world conference of the International Society for Labour and Social Security Law, organized on 4-7 September 2018 in Turin.
The International Association of Labour Law Journals (IALLJ) was established for the following purposes:
- Advancing research and scholarship in the fields of labour and employment law;
- Encouraging the exchange of information regarding all aspects of the publishing process;
- Promoting closer relations among editors of national and international labour and employment law journals.
The late renowned Professor Marco Biagi of the University of Modena, Italy was the first President, and was instrumental in establishing the Association as a Club of Labour Law Journals. During the tenure (2004-2007) of his successor, Jeffrey Sack, Q.C., the Club was reconstituted as an Association, and its membership expanded from 12 to 21 Journals. At the same time, the website for the Assocation was established. As of 2015, there are 27 member journals.
Papers prepared for Association meetings are published by the Comparative Labour Law & Policy Journal and by The International Journal of Comparative Labour Law and Industrial Relations.
During the 2017 IALLJ Business Meeting held in Toronto, 25 June 2017, two new Journals have been admitted as members:
- Diritto delle Relazioni Industriali – edited by Tiziano Treu, Mariella Magnani and Michele Tiraboscho (managing editor) – Publisher: Giuffrè (Italy)
- E-journal of International and Comparative Labour Studies, edited by Malcolm Sargeant and Michele Tiraboschi – Publisher: ADAPT University Press (Italy)
During the 2015 IALLJ Business Meeting held in Leuven, 25 June 2015, two new Journals have been admitted as members:
- Delavci in delodajalci – Revija za delovno pravo in pravo socialne varnosti (Employees & Employers – Labour Law and Social Security Review) (Slovenia).
- Derecho de las Relaciones Laborales (Spain) (considered by the IALLJ as the academic successor to the journal Relaciones Laborales, which was one of the original members of the Association, but which ceased publication in December, 2014).
More information will be made available on the IALLJ website.
