  • Profile

    Vladimir Bogoeski is Assistant Professor in European Private Law. He is a member of the Centre for Transformative Private Law (ACT), and is affiliated with the Sustainable Global Economic Law (SGEL) research group and the N-EXTLAW Project. His current research is situated at the intersection of private law, labour law and political economy of labour. His main research focus is on how (private) law structures work relations, drawing on critical approaches to law such as law and political economy, economic sociology of law, participatory action research (PAR), and law and social movements.

    Prior to joining the UvA, Vladimir was postdoctoral fellow at the Law Faculty at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He was a visiting scholar at the Department of Law at the European University Institute (Florence, 2019) and at Fordham University School of Law (New York, 2018). He received his doctorate from the Hertie School in Berlin (2020), as part of both Hertie's Doctoral Programme in Governance and the Doctoral Programme “Unity and Difference in the European Legal Area” at the Humboldt University European Law School. For his PhD studies he was awarded a full scholarship by the Studienstiftung (The German Academic Scholarship Foundation).

    Vladimir also holds a Master's Degree in European and International Law (LLM.Eur) from the University of Bremen, and an LLB from Ss Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje. Prior to his doctoral studies, Vladimir spent several years working for the German Trade Union Confederation (DGB), counselling and assisting migrant workers with the Fair Mobility Project.

    I welcome LLM thesis proposals addressing different aspects of the relationship between private law and labour in the global economy. I am especially interested in supervising projects that examine the effects of private law on the rights and realities of working people in different contexts, including global value chains, industrial food production, migrant work, trade unions, labour in the context of EU integration (cross-border work, labour mobility), work as part of sustainable small-scale economic activities (e.g. worker cooperatives) etc.
