MARCO BIAGI CALL FOR PAPERS 2018
(SEE ATTACHMENT MARCO BIAGI AWARD CALL 2018 – This text includes all the necessary updates)

To stimulate scholarly activity and broaden academic interest in comparative labour and employment law, the International Association of Labour Law Journals announces a Call for Papers for the 2018 Marco Biagi Award. The award is named in honor of the late Marco Biagi, a distinguished labour lawyer, victim of terrorism because of his commitment to civil rights, and one of the founders of the Association. The Call is addressed to doctoral students, advanced professional students, and academic researchers in the early stage of their careers (that is, with no more than three years of post-doctoral or teaching experience).

 

  1. The Call requests papers concerning comparative and/or international labour or employment law and employment relations, broadly conceived. Research of an empirical nature within the Call’s purview is most welcome.
  2. Submissions will be evaluated by an academic jury to be appointed by the Association. Submitted papers should include an abstract.
  3. The paper chosen as the winner of the award will be assured publication in a member journal, subject to any revisions requested by that journal.
  4. Papers may be submitted preferably in English, but papers in French or Spanish will also be accepted. The maximum length is in the range of 12,500 words, including footnotes and appendices. Substantially longer papers will not be considered.
  5. The author or authors of the paper chosen as the winner of the award will be invited to present the work at the Association’s 2018 meeting which is to be announced soon on the website of the Association. Efforts are being undertaken to provide an honarium and travel expenses for the presentation of the paper. Until that effort bears fruit, however, the Association hopes that home institutional funds would be available to support the researcher’s presentation.
  6. The deadline for submission is March 31, 2018. Submissions should be sent electronically in Microsoft Word both to: Lavoro e diritto at lavoroediritto@unife.itFrank Hendrickx, the President of the Association, at hendrickx@kuleuven.be and, Frank Hendrickx’s secretariat, at  josephine.vanrijmenant@law.kuleuven.be

Announcement: Marco Biagi Award 2013 Winner

The winner of the 2013 Marco Biagi Award is Aline Van Bever (University of Leuven) for a paper entitled, The Fiduciary Nature of the Employment Relationship. This paper explores the circumstances under which an employment relationship may entail fiduciary duties. Recognizing that the employment relationship is both relational and embedded within a complex framework of explicit and implicit norms, the paper explores English, American, Canadian, and Australian law to determine when employees owe specific duties of loyalty to their employer.
