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.

A measure of Citizenship was developed and validated by Rowe and colleagues (O’Connell, Clayton, & Rowe, 2016). The items clustered around the 5 Rs of Citizenship as defined by Rowe: relationships, rights, resources, roles, and rights, and a sense of belonging. While a measure has its utility in clinical settings, in order to address time constraints and other administrative burdens expressed by providers in their day-to-day practice, a Citizens tool was developed as a practical way that providers can enhance dialogue between providers and clients on citizenship for clients served in mental health and criminal justice reentry settings. This paper describes the development of the tool, testing of the tool’s utility with case managers, and implications for practice.
