1. New Book Volume: Labour Law and Industrial Relations in Recessionary Times. The Italian Labour Relations in a Global Economy, edited by Michele Tiraboschi, Cambridge Scholars Publishing - ADAPT Labour Studies Book Series.
This volume includes a number of papers written in English and published in the last fifteen years in which the Italian labour market underwent many changes. The intent here is to provide the international readership with a frame of reference - in both conceptual and legal terms - that helps to appreciate current Italian Labour Law.
2. Internships: In 2014, ADAPT will commence another selection procedure involving international students and recent graduates in law, economics, sociology and languages to undertake internships or research periods lasting 3 to 6 months in Bergamo (Italy).
Selected candidates will be involved in numerous ADAPT international projects and they will be offered a reimbursement of expenses - the amount of which will vary depending on their age and previous experience - as well as accommodation in our guest apartment in the upper town of Bergamo.
Those interested in undertaking an internship or research period at ADAPT may send their CV/resume and cover letter to: email@example.com.
3. New Bulletin: new Twitter-based version of the ADAPT International Bulletin, which collects the main documentation on labour issues published in the last two weeks.
The bulletin includes three commentary notes: "The New Deal for Apprenticeship in England and USA" by Alfonso Balsamo, "The Internationalisation of Education: Causes and Effects" by Alessandra Sartore and "Understanding regulations for small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs)" by Meysam Salimi, all from the International doctoral school in Human Capital Formation and Labour Relations promoted by ADAPT and CQIA (University of Bergamo).
