AIRAANZ Conferences 2019 - Global Work, Quality Work
February 12, 2019 - February 14, 2019

The 33rd annual conference of the Association of Industrial Relations Academics of Australia and New Zealand (AIRAANZ) will be hosted by the School of Management at RMIT University, Melbourne.

The conference theme is Global Work, Quality Work? This theme invites us to consider the dilemmas arising from growing disparities in the quality of jobs and from fragmentation of employment, especially in the context of the rapidly changing landscape of global capitalism, labour regulation, labour migration and labour movements.

The contributions of industrial relations scholarship and practice to understanding and responding to the challenges of growing inequalities in employment, pressures on job quality and poor labour market outcomes for diverse groups of workers will set the direction for the conference. Papers that engage with innovative responses to the challenges and issues of regulation, labour organisation and labour movements are of particular interest.

Along with contributions that address the conference themes a wide range of papers are invited, drawing on industrial relations, human resources, sociology of work and labour rights scholarship and from local, regional and global perspectives.
