I am pleased to welcome you to the new website for the International Association of Labour Law Journals. The Association is a vibrant and growing group. At its most recent meeting in Bordeaux in June, 2013, the Association voted to admit Rivista Giuridica del Lavoro e della Previdenza Sociale from Italy as its 24th member. The minutes of the Bordeaux meeting will soon be online.

Each year, to stimulate scholarly activity and broaden academic interest in comparative labour and employment law, the Association selects a paper by a young scholar as the winner of the 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. Please publish and circulate the Call for Papers for the 2014 Marco Biagi Award as widely as possible.

The next meeting of the Association will be in Dublin, Ireland, in mid-September, 2014. It will be held in conjunction with the XI European Regional Conference of the International Association of Labour and Social Security Law.

The Association is very pleased to unveil this new website. We extend thanks to Lancaster House and Jeffrey Sack for all of their hard work in constructing it.
