Learning outcomes

The course aims at providing the necessary conceptual, normative and methodological bases for analysing and understanding the system of labour law and industrial relations at the EU level. The purpose of the course is to make the student capable of assessing the issues arising in the implementation of the theoretical and regulatory framework, through correct reasoning and arguments.

Syllabus

The course analyses the historical development of the EU social policy, from the founding Treaty to the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty in December 2009. The first part of the course is devoted to the functioning of the EU law sources: starting from the legally binding nature of the Charter of fundamental rights, specific attention will be paid to the distinction between hard law and soft law sources and to the functioning of the EU social dialogue. The course will proceed to investigate the traditional topics of the EU social law: free movement of workers, employment policies, atypical jobs, discriminations, working time, companies’ crises, health and safety at work. The analysis will also focus on the directives adopted on the basis of Title V of the TEUF. The study of the main meaningful judgements of the Court of Justice of the EU will also be an integral part of the course.

Hard law and Soft Law: employment policies. Social dialogue. Free movement of workers. The Directives adopted in accordance to Title V of the Lisbon Treaty.
