Contrary to the notion that labour law is specifically a national area of law, labour law has become more of a ‘European-wide’ area of interest over the past years. The influences of EU labour directives and European social rights are increasingly perceptible in national labour legislation, while views in EU member states on employee participation, the position of flexible workers and cross-border labour agreements are converging. It has become quite common for companies to move or open branches abroad, which has led to a multitude of cross-border job relations. Demand keeps rising steadily for specialised labour lawyers who are up to date with relevant judgements by the Court of Justice of the EU and who are well informed about developments in other countries. The programme in European and International Labour Law is a response to this demand. The graduate programme is designed to study labour law in its broadest sense: other fields of law will be covered insofar as they relate to labour issues.
