The International Society for Labour and Social Security Law (ISLSSL) was constituted in Brussels in June 1958. It is the result of the merger of the International Society for Social Law (São Paulo Congress, 1954, and Brussels Congress, 1958) and the International Congresses of Labour Law (Trieste, 1951, and Geneva, 1957).
The ISLSSL has been established with the following purposes:
- to study labour and social security law at the national as well as international level,
- to promote the exchange of ideas and information from a comparative perspective, and
- to encourage the closest possible collaboration among academics, lawyers, and other experts within the fields of labour and social security law.
The aims of the Society are of a purely scientific character, independent of all considerations of a political, philosophical or religious nature.
