About membership

Becoming a member of the Work and Labour Network offers you the opportunity to attend the RLDWL Assemblies, to receive information about the activities of the Network and to have reduced prices for conferences, workshops and publications (see Registration Form).

Publications

In 2000 the Institute for Labour Foundation published a book on Intermediate Institutions. The book is entitled “The Role of Intermediate Institutions. The case of Research Institutes concerned with Work and Labour, Milan, Franco Angeli”, and contains contributions by researchers from European and non-European institutes dealing with Work and Labour who discuss their past experiences and future challenges. Both the role and the prospects of the Work and Labour Network are discussed.

The next publications, entitled “The Injustice at Work: an International View on the World of Labour and Society”, edited in 2002 by György Széll and Gian Primo Cella, integrated the most important contributions to the Ravello and Rio-Conferences, “Labour, Globalisation and the New Economy”, edited by György Széll, Carl-Heinrich Bösling & Johannes Hartkemeyer in 2005, which assembled the best contributions of the 2002 conference; finally so far “Education, Science & Labour - Perspectives for the 21st Century”, which documents the 2006 Congress, edited by György Széll, Carl-Heinrich Bösling & Ute Széll in 2007. All these books were published by Peter Lang Publisher, Frankfurt, Berlin, Bern, Brussels, Paris, New York, Vienna. The first European chapter conference is documented in “Globalization, Company Strategies and Quality of Working Life in Europe” edited by F. Garibaldo and V. Telljohann, published by Peter Lang Publisher in 2004; the second one is documented in “New Forms of Work Organisation and Industrial Relations in Southern Europe”, edited by F. Garibaldo and V. Telljohann, published by Peter Lang Publisher in 2007.
