Symposium theme: Critical Perspectives in Decent Work

Work and industry are changing rapidly in new and unexpected ways shaped by, among other things, evolving digital technologies, globalisation and circular migration, normalisation of corporate social responsibility, shifting regulatory and accountability measures, and pandemics and disasters. Critical approaches to the shifting landscapes of work and industry are required to achieve an equitable future providing equal access to decent work and the social protections, rights, and fair remuneration this encompasses.

The symposium theme critical perspectives in decent work is offered as an opportunity to explore contemporary and future dimensions and intersections of decent work, quality higher education and responsible industry.

We invite presentations from all disciplines including, but not limited to, critical management studies, economic and cultural geography, sociology, public relations, human resources management, organisational and social psychology, youth and disability studies, education systems, critical social marketing, gender, environmental and social policy, and organisation studies.
