The Institute of European Studies of ULB acknowledged with great sadness the death of Mrs Eliane Vogel-Polsky, who has been for many years Law Professor in our University and Director of research in the Sociology Institute. Her publications in her chosen sector, social law, and gender equality at work and in politics are renown worldwide.
European institutions, in particular the Council of Europe and the European Commission, as well as the International Labour Organisation have many times used her competences as an expert. Her publications, notably Social Europe (1993) and Reshape European Union towards a social State (1998) attest for her deep interest in the evolution of EU law in this field.
The Institute presents its sincere condolences to her family and close relations.
