European Trade Union Confederation Brian Bercusson Award

by | Apr 12, 2018

The European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) has instituted an award to honour the outstanding and dynamic scientific work, of great value to the European trade union movement, of the late labour law Professor Brian Bercusson: the ETUC Brian Bercusson Award.

Through this Award, the ETUC and the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) support academic research that deepens understanding and promotes transnational workers’ rights in Europe. The focus on European labour law aims to raise awareness about new scientific research in academia as well as among practitioners in the European Union in order to encourage scientific, legal and political actions for the further development, full recognition and better implementation of trade union and workers’ rights.

To be eligible, individual PhD researchers must have successfully defended a PhD research project in the period between 2 October 2014 and 1 October 2018.

Applications for this award can be sent to sclauwae@etui.org before 7 October 2018.
