About us

THE 9TH REGIONAL CONGRESS OF THE AMERICAS, OF THE INTERNATIONAL LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT RELATIONS ASSOCIATION (ILERA), WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE CITY OF BUENOS AIRES ON 11-13 OCTOBER 2017 AT THE PONTIFICIA UNIVERSIDAD CATÓLICA DE BUENOS AIRES.

The event is co-organized by the International Labour and Employment Relations Association (ILERA) and the Argentine Association of Labour Relations of the Republic of Argentina (ILERA-ARTRA), together with the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Law and Labour Relations (IDEIDES) of the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (UNTREF), with the support of the postgraduate courses PhD in Labour Law (UNTREF) and Master's Degree in Labour Law and International Labour Relations (UNTREF), of the Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina (UCA), and various institutions, including IERI, ILERA COLOMBIA, CIELO, SADL.

The congress theme is "Protecting Employment and Protecting People." At the Summit meeting held on 2 April 2009 in London, G-20 leaders made a commitment to "focus the global plan for recovery on the needs and the jobs of those families who are working hard to restore confidence, growth and jobs and to build an inclusive, green and sustainable recovery".

In the 2017 Hamburg Summit, our cowntry prioritized education and cualified jobs. That's why we believe that our region and the world in general must give real answers to the present problems: the demand for quality jobs and decent work, which enables actual development and ensures labour productivity and social development.

To this end, effective policies are necessary for economic growth and development along with social welfare, in order to achieve a more balanced, stable and prosperous future. These policies should be carried out taking into account the social and labour reality of the world and our region, also considering technological, social, and demographic changes, and the scientific development that impact directly on the system of labour relations.

The Congress presents the challenge of addressing the topics proposed by analyzing pending issues from a theoretical and practical standpoint, while contributing innovative win-win solutions.

We warmly invite distinguished and young researchers, government officials responsible for the implementation of public policies, government representatives, employers and workers, legal scholars, because we believe that their contribution is of vital importance, as is the attendance of an audience eager to listen to them. Also, it will be a great opportunity to build new bonds and international communication channels among experts in labour relations and related areas.
