The Global Labour Research Centre (GLRC), based in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, engages in the study of work, employment and labour in the context of a constantly changing global economy. The Centre’s work is organized around four major themes:
- The impact of the changing nature of work and employment on labour rights
- The interrelationships between migration, citizenship and work
- Gender relations at work and in labour movements
- The revitalization of workers’ movements
The GLRC acts as hub for pan-university research collaboration on global labour, and promotes research that engages with a wide range of labour and community partners.
