The Centre for Business Research Labour Regulation Index (CBR-LRI) is a comprehensive index of labour laws in 117 countries. Work on the Index began a decade ago at the University of Cambridge Centre for Business Research and it has recently been updated to cover the period from 1970 to the end of 2022, thanks to ESRC funding through the Digital Futures at Work Research Centre

In this hybrid seminar, some of the trends and patterns revealed by the new dataset will be presented. Issues to be covered include the impact on labour laws of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the response of courts and legislature to the rise of platform work and the challenges it poses.


Bhumika Billa, Louise Bishop, Simon Deakin, Kamelia Pourkermani, Tvisha Shroff, CBR, University of Cambridge
