Introduction: Elisabeth Aerts (UAntwerpen) visits SciencesPo

During the months of October and November 2016 I was in Paris for two months in order to conduct research at the “Chaire Mutations de l’Action publique et du Droit Public” of SciencesPo. The research focused on the one hand on the administrative law nature of the legal situation of contractual employees in the public sector and the resulting possibilities to unilaterally change the employment conditions. On the other hand, I researched the public sector’s collective labour relations and their effects on the legal situation of the public sector staff.
