Globalization

VII GLOBAL LABOUR UNIVERSITY CONFERENCE

Call for Papers

The Global Labour University is pleased to announce a call for papers for the 2011 conference on “The Politics of Labour and Development” to be held in Johannesburg, South Africa from September 28 to 30, 2011.

The conference invites contributions to discuss the different dimensions of a labour agenda for change including:
– workplace and collective bargaining issues,
– the potential for broader policy alliances,
– new forms of power and leverage,
– alternatives to the current globalization regime

The full text of the Call for Papers is available at: http://www.global-labour-university.org/ or the link to the call in PDF format is http://www.global-labour-university.org/fileadmin/GLU_conference_2011/Call_For_Paper_GLU_Conference_2011.pdf

The GLU encourages policy orientated research and therefore welcomes submissions that not only analyses the problem, but also offer policy initiatives and solutions for debate.

Please send a one page abstract (which includes your methodological approach) by January 30, 2011 to Pulane Ditlhake at: Glu.SouthAfrica@wits.ac.za and Michelle Williams at: michelle.williams@wits.ac.za
