Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

THIS ATLAS, devoted to the most recent architecture of Africa and the Middle East, is the third volume in a series of four which develop and update the work published in 2007 by the BBVA Foundation, Atlas. Global Architecture circa 2000. With the same intellectual coordinates as the previous books, which attempted to simultaneously reflect the ‘state of the world’ and the ‘state of the art’, this publication gathers a selection of recent works and projects along with ten texts by prominent experts on the different countries or regions of the area, from Southern Africa to Turkey, passing through the heart of the continent, the Maghreb, Egypt, the Arabian Peninsula and the territories that once were Persia, Mesopotamia and the Levant. Initiated with a volume on Asia and the Pacific, the series continued with one devoted to America, and will complete the itinerary with a fourth volume on the architectures of Europe, ending at the finis terrae of the Iberian Peninsula
