Erkens presents a paper at the World Congress of the International Society for Labour and Social Security Law (ISLSSL) in Turin
Last week Hanneke Bennaars and Yvonne Erkens visited the World Congress of the International Society for Labour and Social Security Law (ISLSSL) which was held from 4 to 7 September 2018 in Turin, Italy. The theme of the congress was “Transformations of Work: Challenges for the National Systems of Labour Law and Social Security”.
ISLSSL promotes research on a wide range of topics concerning labour and social security law, and also supports comparative initiatives and organizes conferences and seminars.
Issues and themes were considered which are currently of global importance in labour law, for example informal workers, migrant workers, global trade and labour and new forms of social security. Yvonne Erkens presented a paper on the Dutch IRBC Agreements, which the Social Economic Council of the Netherlands (SER) was involved in drawing up. The Agreements are quite unique in the world and can be seen as a new manner in which substance can be given to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
