Labour and Industry – 2020 AIRAANZ Conference Special Issue: Doing things differently? IR practice and research beyond 2020

This special issue will address the broad theme of the 2020 AIRAANZ Conference. It will consider the future of our IR practice and research as it is shaped by contemporary influences and trends. The conference includes streams that examine the improvement of workers’ rights (focusing on the intersection of politics and social change within the workplace); the exploration of organisational feminist change mechanisms in the public sector; and the progress of gender equality in the workplace and comparative collective bargaining systems.

Papers from these streams are of particular interest for the special issue as they reflect and respond to social and IR issues into the future.
