A year ago, on January 10, 2019, the Labour Law and Development Research Laboratory at McGill University’s Faculty of Law convened a semester-long, English-French bilingual course on the Transnational Futures of International Labour Law, sponsored by my Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation fellowship, to commemorate the ILO’s centenary. Sessions were guest lectured by some of the leading scholars and jurists in international labour law and related fields. The Director-General of the International Labour Organization, Mr. Guy Ryder, delivered an opening welcome, and several senior ILO legal officials were amongst the commentators. A full archive of the course is available at: https://www.mcgill.ca/lldrl/what-we-teach/tfill.
The first special publication to emerge from the initiative was published at the close of the centenary, in December 2019. It featured contributions from Larry Helfer, Liam McHugh Russell, Álvaro Santos, Guy Fiti Sinclair, Mimi Zou and myself. It is in the flagship, open-access AJIL Unbound, and available at: https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/american-journal-of-internationa.... Do look out for further contributions in a special issue of the trilingual International Labour Review, expected toward the end of 2020.
