  • Overview

    The main objectives of the course are to examine in detail current issues within the employment relations (ER) context at international and regional levels, and to equip students with basic proposal writing and research skills. One of the key areas to be examined is the impact of globalisation on the world of work and emerging practices. The first half of the course will be discussion-based, providing a background to student research projects in emerging ER themes of interest. Students will be required to make seminar presentations, write a proposal and research report.
