The FORMULA project focuses on the Posted Workers Directive and the Services Directive and interconnecting issues and processes and aims at attaining, by way of comparative and interdisciplinary approaches, deepened understanding of how interacting political, legal, socio-institutional and economic logics are influencing the interplay between the different institutions and organised actors shaping supra-national decision-making and national adjustments in the emerging multilayered European polity, with particular regard to the formation, adaptation, and application of legal regimes in the labour market. Professor Tonia Novitz provides the UK dimension of analysis on this project.'
The Leverhulme Trust has awarded the University of Bristol a three year Leverhulme International Network grant to enable research on a project 'Voices at Work: legal effects on organisation, representation and negotiation'. This comparative project, led by Professor Tonia Novitz (University of Bristol) and Dr Alan Bogg (University of Oxford), will investigate the relationship between law and workplace participation. Its focus will be on legal developments in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the US. A variety of events will be held and a website will be created to facilitate interaction between academics from diverse disciplines in these different countries. The aim will also be to engage with policy makers, including governments, social partners, NGOs and UN organisations. Please contact Professor Tonia Novitz for further information.
