The ILERA World Congress Goes Online!

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and in order to ensure a safe and inclusive congress with participation from around the world, the organisers in collaboration with the ILERA Executive Committee, have decided that the World Congress will go online.

We set out to offer an engaging and inspiring congress design, where robust digital solutions will provide for high quality transmission of panels, sessions and presentations, and where participants will be able to communicate and collaborate in various ways in a broad and global setting.

The World Congress will provide excellent opportunities for discussion of new research results and policies, exchange of best practices, and social networking. We are striving to keep the congress fees to a minimum.

The deadline for Call of Papers expired on 31 January. We wish to thank all colleagues and applicants for your interest in the 19th ILERA World Congress. We are delighted by the great response. The peer review process will now commence and you will be notified of the result in mid-March.

Notifications of acceptance: 17 March 2021
Information on registration and registration fees for the World Congress will follow.

Making and Breaking Boundaries in Work and Employment Relations

For more than 50 years, ILERA, the International Labour and Employment Relations Association, has promoted the study – in and across a number of academic disciplines – of labour and employment relations throughout the world.

The 19th ILERA World Congress in Lund will continue this impressive tradition and serve as a vital global platform, gathering scholars, social partners, policy-makers, and other stakeholders to exchange ideas and best practices.
