CPEL Global Labour Reform Series: How have recent changes in government policy and employment regulation impacted on the global experience of labour?
Centre for the Political Economy of Labour: Global labour reforms series
How have recent changes in government policy and employment regulation impacted on the global experience of labour?
This is the inaugural event of the Global Labour Reform Seminar Series of the Centre for the Political Economy of Labour (CPEL). Considering changes in government policy and employment regulation and the global experience and spectrum of labour, this event is a space for sharing stories of work and labour contestation, making new connections, and informing the future research agenda of CPEL. This event brings together partners and activists from Uzbekistan, Brazil and Mauritius to reflect on changes to government policy and employment regulation and share experiences of how this impacts on the lived reality of labour across diverse sectors of the economy. The event seeks to make new connections, map contemporary changes and share stories of worker experience and resistance on the distinct frontiers of labour regulation.
We are delighted to confirm participation from The Uzbek forum for Human Rights, the Federal University of Mato Grosso (Brazil) and the trade union, The Confederation des Travailleurs des Secteurs Public et Prive (CTSP) and look forward to the discussion.
