Labour Rights Institute

The UCL Labour Rights Institute (LRI) was established in 2010 with the principal aim of promoting teaching and research at UCL in labour law subjects. For the purposes of the LRI, ‘labour law’ is broadly defined as including individual and collective labour law, and anti-discrimination and equality law, at a domestic, European, international, and comparative level. Labour market regulation and issues of labour migration also fall within the Institute’s core areas of interest and work, and the Institute has a distinct vocation for comparative and European/supranational analytical and critical studies.

The LRI seeks to achieve these objectives in a number of ways, and chiefly by organising conferences, seminars and lectures on labour law subjects, establishing interdisciplinary links with other UCL Institutes and Centres, building networks of contacts with government departments, international organizations, the social partners, and institutions and groups working in the area of labour law, and encouraging co-operative work with other universities with special interests in labour law subjects with a view to developing programmes of visits, staff exchanges, and collaborative research.
