Description

Ben Jackson, Associate Professor & Tutorial Fellow in Modern History, Faculty of History & University College, Oxford University, gives a talk at the Neoliberalism, Employment and the Law workshop at Wolfson College, Oxford. Dr Jackson questioned what was distinctive about the neoliberal understanding of labour and traced the various dimensions of this radical ideological innovation, encompassing neoliberals? understanding of the economic relationship between trade unions and employment, inequality and inflation; of the distinction between the state and civil society; and ultimately the neoliberal attempt to dissolve the language of class altogether through the sponsorship of alternative discourses about ?human capital? and producer and consumer interests.

Neoliberalism Workshop: Contradictions in liberal reforms: The regulation of labour subcontracting

Description

Guy Mundlak, Professor at The Buchmann Faculty of Law, Tel Aviv University, gives a talk for the Neoliberalism workshop. Professor Mundlak outlined the legal problems, and the principle of residual responsibility associated with the triangular relationship between the worker, the (sub-contracted) provider of the service and the direct employer. Although conducted as empirical research on temporary and sub-contracted workers in Israel, he argued that the study?s findings could be seen as a prophecy of what is currently happening worldwide in terms of employer liability and workers? rights.

Neoliberalism workshop: Implications for future visions of work and organisation

Description

Richard White, Senior Lecturer in Economic Geography, Sheffield Hallam University, gives a talk for the Neoliberalism, Employment and the Law workshop at Wolfson College, Oxford, hosted the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society in November 2015. Dr White examined how we can value and harness alternative work practices in a neoliberal society. He challenged the negativity associated with neoliberalism as a label and argued that decentralisation of capitalism could be harnessed to help us think differently about social justice and empowerment in our everyday spaces and lives. He said understanding the pervasive nature of non-commodified work practices promoted greater awareness around ?alternative?, non-capitalist spaces within the advanced economies of the western world.

Migrants, conditionality and welfare in the UK

Description

Peter Dwyer, University of York, gives a talk for the COMPAS seminar series. Conditionality matters for migrants. First, in a broad sense i.e. the ways in which UK immigration and welfare policies intersect to establish and structure the diverse rights and responsibilities of different migrant groups living in the UK. Second, in respect of more focused understandings of welfare conditionality and the linking of an individual?s rights to social welfare benefits and services to specified behavioural requirements. This seminar explores how these two aspects of conditionality play out in migrants? interactions with welfare agencies. Discussions will draw on early analysis of new qualitative data generated in first wave interviews with 54 migrants who are one cohort within a larger, repeat Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/
