The Recent Development and Impact of Populism on European Labour Law
Welcome to an Open Symposium hosted by Department of Business Law at Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM). The symposium is given on site and online.
Political calls in terms of anti-globalisation, anti-elites, anti-EU, anti-migration, differentiation between “us and them”, and sometimes a general retrospective ambition to go back to a “better past” are heard across Europe.
One of the more challenging developments of contemporary Europe is the recent rise of populism across the continent. This symposium offers a venue to elucidate the impact, actual or potential, of populist movements with a focus on labour law including labour related social policies. The key note speakers provide insights from different Member States of the European Union, such as Hungary Poland, Greece, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
Labour market regulations usually affect very broad groups in the society and are of significant importance for the development of companies and societies. Some countries, such as the Scandinavian are more dependent on the collective labour law and industrial relations, while detailed legislation is more commonly applied in other countries. The impact of political populism can be either accelerated or held back by the way the labour market is organised and regulated.
