Welcome to the Institute

for Labour Law and Industrial Relations

in the European Union

THE INSTITUTE

The employees of the IAAEU research the underlying economic and legal conditions for labour in a constantly changing European society. Our task is project-related research, which is interdisciplinary, socially relevant and receives international attention. The goal is to influence the public discourse with scientific findings and thereby improve the conditions for labour and industrial relations. In that light, the institute understands itself as an initiating force for other researchers and for the region. The IAAEU was founded as a public law foundation in 1983. The institute is financed by the German Federal State of Rhineland-Palatinate and is also a scientific institution attached to Trier University. It is located on Campus II of the University.

Research at the IAAEU takes place under a tight cooperation between the two chairs of the co-directors Prof. Dr. Dres. h.c. Monika Schlachter (International and European Labour Law and Civil Law) and Prof. Dr. Laszlo Goerke (Business Administration – Personnel Economics). Furthermore, the institute maintains an extensive library with a unique collection of works pertinent to labour law, industrials relations, particularly industrial relations between member states of the EU, and personnel economics.
