Vladimir Bogoeski is Postdoctoral Researcher in the N-EXTLAW project and member of the Centre for Transformative Private Law (ACT). His current research is situated at the intersection of private law, labour law and political economy of labour. As part of the N-EXTLAW team Vladimir works on questions of how private law structures work relations, focusing on worker cooperatives as an alternative model of organising economic activity and work in non-extractive ways. He is interested in critical approaches to law, particularly law and political economy/economic sociology approaches to questions of labour in the global economy, collective labour law in the context of European integration, global food systems, migrant work, participatory action research (PAR), organising 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.
Moot Court in European Union Law
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.
