Call For Papers

ADAPT’s International School of Higher Education in Labour and Industrial Relations invites scholars and researchers to provide their contributions on workers’ current needs, the collective dimension of work, and the relevant factors enhancing people’s work, fostering personal fulfilment and professional identity, and creating sustainable and inclusive labour markets. A comparative and interdisciplinary approach will be taken, given the different aspects considered in this conference. The following research tracks will be considered:

Track 1 – What do workers want from labour law?
Track 2 – Artificial Intelligence (AI): moving beyond technological unemployment to address job quality
Track 3 – Trade unions and employers’ associations promoting education and training: decline or revival?
Track 5 – Workers and industrial relations against the background of the socio-ecological transition
Track 6 – Lifelong learning as a key to workers’ empowerment
Track 7 – Representation, communication and languages: collective interests and disintermediation in the age of social media
Track 8 – Workers' interests and collective bargaining: wage issues and social (in)security
Track 9 –Equality of opportunity in the labour market and the role of social dialogue
Track 10 – Local dynamics for competitive, inclusive and sustainable labour markets
