China and ILO fundmental principles and rights at work
January 17, 2013 - 09:00-January 18, 2013 - 14:30
The first research seminar organized by the research project “ILO Core Labour Standards Implementation in China: Legal Architecture and Cultural Logic” (2012-2015) financed by the Academy of Finland and hosted by the Faculty of Law at the University of Helsinki.
The seminar aims to explore China’s labour issue from an international and comparative law perspective as well as a historical and cultural perspective. The seminar will discuss to what extent the ILO Conventions have influenced the development of labour law in China and to what extent international labour standards are implemented in Chinese law and practice, especially considering China’s multi-layered administrative structure and the incentives for local governments to attract foreign investment. The program includes also a round-table meeting organized for raising the awareness of the academic community about the China related studies currently undertaken. It hopes to promote the research cooperation among researchers in Finland. Therefore, we welcome researchers interested in Chinese studies to contribute by shortly presenting their current projects and research frameworks. For more details please see attached seminar programme. After the registration time has ended, we looked closer at the participant's list and noticed that our event got the attention of a very divers audience regarding the represented institutions. The merit of attracting researchers and professionals from both the public and private sectors belong undoubtedly to our speakers list. Such a combination of experts and varied public promises a stimulating exchange and discussion. Therefore we have decided to extend the registration period until Thursday, January 10th.
