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

In recent years there has been a strong focus on the impact of research on policy and practice within the UK. The devolved government in Scotland has been particularly supportive of innovation and change relating to environmental improvement and this has been seen for example in the creation of Architecture & Design Scotland (A&DS) to champion good practice in architecture and design. The 2016, year-long 'Festival of Architecture' provides a plethora of opportunities to celebrate and reflect on the richness of Scottish architecture, as part of the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, and a catalyst to generate a discourse on architecture and design pedagogy.
