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:

  1. The impact of the changing nature of work and employment on labour rights
  2. The interrelationships between migration, citizenship and work
  3. Gender relations at work and in labour movements
  4. 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.
