Neoliberalism, Employment, and the Law


This workshop will inquire how neoliberalism, as ideology and policy, has transformed employment law and employment relations. Towards this end, participants will question what neoliberalism truly stands for, and what can be derived from it. To what extent do reforms implemented in recent years derive from a neoliberal agenda and ideology?

The workshop will explore the reasons for the increasing significance of equality and non-discrimination in the work of labour lawyers, and ask: Is there an ideological, political and legal future beyond neoliberalism, and if so – what could it look like?
