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.

With increasing frequency environmentally sustainable tourism or ecotourism is adopted as a way of ensuring environmental conservation while enabling economic development. Around the globe, developing countries, in particular, are now encouraged by diverse interest groups to consider such a type of tourism as a solution to their environmental and economic challenges. The supporters of this type of tourism as a development strategy are typically international funding agencies, global environmental organizations, international tourism businesses, national governments, and local community organizations. While these groups have different interests, environmentally sustainable tourism appears to be a tool for negotiating those interests.
