In September 2015, President Tiziano Treu proposed a new initiative, which the Executive Committee endorsed; namely, the establishment of seven international research (or study) groups as a means for promoting collaborative research focused on a specific topic. The idea was that these research groups would work over the period of two years, and would report at the next world congress. Professor Treu’s initiative was a great success. The reports of the research groups were presented at the plenary sessions of the XXII ISLSSL World Congress in Turin and engendered significant interest in engagement. In addition, many individuals presented papers connected to these seven themes throughout the Congress. This proved a more dynamic approach than the traditional approach of having topics selected, and rapporteurs appointed who would prepare national reports on the topic and then present a summary and analysis at the world congress.

Today, with so much information available online, there is no longer a need for national reports. In contrast, the formation of international research groups provides the opportunity for many of our members to contribute to ongoing dialogue and debate on a given topic, and it permits the theme coordinators to draw on this to produce a report that identifies issues, trends and policy options. The web and new online platforms for group work will help us in organizing our work and in exchanging information and papers.

Encouraged by the success of this research group approach, our President, Janice Bellace, has proposed that we follow it once again in the period leading to the XXIII ISLSSL World Congress in Lima in 2021. The seven international research (or study) groups for the XXIII ISLSSL World Congress are as follows:

  • Transformation of Work: Challenges to Labour Law
  • Global Trade and Work
  • New challenges of social security
  • Migrant Workers
  • Non-Standard and Informal Workers
  • Equality at Work
  • The State and New Forms of Collective Voice

The proposals for lectures must refer to one of the topics addressed by the research groups.


Authors should submit a proposal that develops one of the topics of the World Congress which abstract shall have a maximum length of 500 words. All proposals must be in English, Spanish or French and will be subject to a refereeing process.
