Among today’s hotly contested political and economic debates, what the future of globalization will look like has recently taken centre stage. In what ways has globalization restructured work and living conditions? How has nation-state power been transformed? What role have international institutions and multi-national corporations played? How have these global transformations affected the ability of workers to fight for justice inside and outside of work? In an increasingly mobile world, this course introduces students to the key debates about globalization, the major forces transforming work, its uneven impacts around the globe and emerging strategies for workers justice.
