Our Foundation

Established in 2010 in Lucca, the Foundation is aimed at effectively reviving Pera’s thoughts still relevant to the modern world.

The principles of the Foundation are outlined in its Manifesto and By-Laws. Its structure includes an International Board, involving a number of scholars of labour law and economics from major foreign Countries, as well as a Steering Committee, composed of the same members of the Scientific Committee of the «Rivista Italiana di Diritto del Lavoro».

It is chaired by Pia Pera, and supported financially by several Partners.

In the past few months, the Foundation has created the conditions for holding an International Meeting of scholars who will gather in Lucca periodically to develop a common vision on the implementation of active labour law policies and their testing.
The contribution of young scholars in dialogue and cultural exchange will be especially encouraged, by Scholarships and Research Fellowships.
