Labour Law and Social Rights in Europe. The Jurisprudence of international Courts

Autor: Maciej Łaga, Stefano Bellomo, Nicola Gundt, José Maria Miranda Boto (eds)

Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Gdańskiego


This book is the fruit of a meeting of the ELLYS, which was held in Santiago de Compostela (Spain) on 4–5 June 2015. The main scholarly part of the meeting comprised papers addressing ten different international court judgments. What was unique was that each judgment was commented on by two participants from different European countries. This facilitated seeing that the judgments were received differently in different countries.
