Influencing Labour Standards and Stakeholder Action Through International, European and National Law and Policy

Impact: Political impacts, Legal impacts, Society and culture


Koukiadaki has a sustained record of collaboration, on her own and in conjunction with the Work and Equalities Institute (WEI) of the University of Manchester, with major labour policy actors. Her research on the role of legal mechanisms in promoting inclusive labour standards has influenced the guidance and action of international policy bodies (the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the European Parliament, the Council of Europe, the ILO/OECD/UN new Global Deal); shaped national policy, including policy pertaining to the extension of collective agreements and the amendment of legislation on collective dismissals in Greece; and provided evidence-based arguments used by the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) and national trade unions (COSATU in S. Africa) as well as national governments (Greece) in their interactions with supranational and national labour policy stakeholders.
