  • How Global Migration Changes the Workforce Diversity Equation 31 May 2013 - 1 June 2013

    Los Angeles, CA

    The increase in migration flows that took place in the last two decades deeply changed the composition of the workforce in many countries and sharpened the national and international debate about migrants in the labour market.

    The conference aims at contributing to the current debate and attaining a better understanding of the causes, consequences and possible responses to these issues on a global scale, through an interdisciplinary and comparative approach.

    ADAPT and IRLE invite professors, researchers, doctoral students, experts, practitioners and all those interested in the conference topics, from the perspectives of multiple disciplines - including, but not limited to, economics, history, sociology, political science, labour and employment law, industrial relations, and human resource studies - to submit proposals focused on the issues of this conference.
