About ILaRC

The International Labor Rights Case Law Journal (ILaRC) is a pioneer journal in this field and it collects the most important decisions of national, regional and international decision-making bodies (e.g. the ILO, CJEU, American Court of Human Rights) on fundamental labor rights (freedom of association, non-discrimination, right to strike, child and forced labor, health and safety at work). A commentary is added to each decision.

Who can participate?

The competition is open for students of the International and European Law Programme of The Hague University of Applied Sciences and for students of both the Advanced Master Global and European Labour Law (GELL) and the Labour Law Master of Leiden Law School.


A panel of (labor) law experts will select the two best commentaries that will be published in the upcoming issue of ILaRC.
