ILERA2020 Goes Online!

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the ILERA2020 organizing committee made the decision to switch to an online conference format for ILERA2020. We feel that it is more important than ever to create opportunities for our community to get together and discuss pressing issues with regard to work and employment.

The response has been extremely positive and we thank the participants and ILERA community for their support of this new experience.

Our program will be full with over 60 conference sessions and over 250 participants. Find great pre-recorded content that is live now. View it anytime by clicking on the title of the session provided in the program.



The International Industrial Relations Association (IIRA) was established in 1966 in response to a growing need to develop and exchange knowledge in the field of industrial relations, at the international level, and provide academics and practitioners with a forum for discussion and research. Its founding members were the British Universities Industrial Relations Association, the Industrial Relations Research Association (USA), the International Institute for Labour Studies (Geneva, Switzerland) and the Japan Institute of Labour. In 2010 it was decided to change its name to International Labour and Employment Relations Association, ILERA.
