Description

This unit of study examines the changing character and organisation of work associated with the shifting dynamics of globalisation. The organisation of work is explored in terms of the interplay of formal and informal sectors of contemporary capitalist economies and waged and non-waged labour, and the place of key institutions, including the state, capital, unions and households, in shaping patterns of capital accumulation.
