The purpose of this session is to discuss in detail up to four recently published books by RC44 members. Any RC44 member, who has published a research monograph, either single-authored or co-authored, between January 2015 and April 2016, is invited to submit this book to Alexander Gallas at alexandergallas@uni-kassel.de and Rina Agarwala at agarwala@jhu.edu. Four books depending on quality but also on contents to ensure a fairly coherent session will be selected for this session.
This session is organised by the editors of the Global Labour Journal. Since Autumn 2014, the Global Labour Journal has become the official journal of RC44, co-hosted by the Global Labour University and supported by the International Center for Development and Decent Work (ICDD) in Kassel and the Penn State Center for Global Workers’ Rights.
