The dramatic flux of migrants all over Europe is unveiling deficiencies and scarcity of resources for social security systems, particularly at national level.

Some Member States have already taken harsh measures to tackle the problem, by reducing social security benefits to those people considered to be inactive in the labour market. The EU Commission has brought several claims in this regard, the most critical position being that of UK, accused before the CJEU to be too severe.

In this lecture Professor Edoardo Ales will analyse these sensitive issues, moreover amplified by the Brexit debate, both from a legal perspective and from the view of internal EU social policies


Edoardo ALES (University of Cassino) is Professor of Labour Law at the University of Cassino and Southern Lazio, where in the past years he served as dean; currently he also teaches EU Labour Law and Social Policies at LUISS Rome and at the University of Wien. He is an active participant in the European Working Group on Labour Law. He is a member if the steering committee and national expert for Italy in the European Labour Law Network. He is member of the editorial board of the most important labour law journals edited in Italy and Europe, among which must be recalled the European Labour Law Journal (ELLJ). He has written books and essays on various themes, such as collective bargaining, employee’s representation, information and consultation rights, and working contracts in the public service. His most recent research focuses are on the social dimension of the EU, particularly the condition of migrant workers after the relevant case law of the CJEU.
