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 paper envisions ways in which deep sustainability can be incorporated into architectural pedagogy. It bases its argument on the belief that architectural education can open new avenues toward the achievement of real sustainable development. The paper introduces concepts, meaning, definitions, and characteristics of deep sustainability. By conducting a content analysis procedure it investigates the status of architectural courses in a number of schools in the developing world. MIU program, an example from Egypt, is presented as an endeavor to reconfigure the educational process in a manner that is based on deep sustainability. The paper ends of outlineing a set of recommodations that aim at incorporating the principles and practices of deep sustainability into architectural pedagogy.
