Regulating for Decent Work (RDW) Network
The Centre is one of the founding members of the RDW Network. The RDW is a collaboration between researchers at the International Labour Organization (ILO), the University of Amsterdam’s Amsterdam Institute for Labour Studies / Hugo Sinzheimer Instituut (AIAS-HSI), the Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law (CELRL), Jawaharlal Nehru University’s Centre for Informal Sector and Labour Studies (CISLS), the University of Durham’s Law School (DLS), the Cornell University’s ILR School, the University of Duisburg-Essen’s Institut Arbeit und Qualifikation (IAQ), the Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA), the Korea Labor Institute (KLI), the University of Manchester’s Work and Equalities Institute (WEI), and academic and policy institutions from across the world. The network is interdisciplinary and involves researchers from a range of fields including economics, law, sociology, development studies, industrial relations and geography.
The objective of the RDW Network is to foster research and exchange of ideas concerning the role of labour and employment law protections in fostering economic development. The Network also aims to advance research and policy directions tailored towards making labour market regulation more effective.
Labour Law Research Network
In 2011, the Centre assisted in the formation of a new association of labour law scholars, the Labour Law Research Network (LLRN).
The Network is based on cooperation between over 70 labour law research centres from all over the world. The goal of the LLRN is to advance research in labour law, and specifically to facilitate the dissemination of research work and encourage open discussion of scholarship and ideas in this field. All individual labour law scholars are welcome to join, whether affiliated with a research centre or not.
Centre member John Howe was a member of the inaugural Steering Committee of the Network, and was Chair of the Steering Committee from 2015-2019.
