The Executive Committee of the AALS Labor Relations and Employment Law Section is seeking abstracts for papers to be presented at the AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, La. The section program is entitled: Workers After the Ascendancy of Global Financial Capital. The papers will be published in the Employee Rights and Employment Policy Journal, a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal published by ITT Chicago-Kent College of Law.
The panel will focus on the impact of global financial capital on American labor markets, and consider the role of international organizations and transnational norms in addressing these dynamics. Topics from leading scholars already committed to present include community syndicalism and global supply chains, the effects on workers of restructuring within international financing, and the issues raised by international labor standards and multilateral trade agreements. We are seeking one additional speaker who will present on a relevant topic, and we are particularly interested in speakers with diverse views and voices.
The Labor Relations and Employment Law Section program takes place on Friday, January 4, 2013 from 2 to 5PM. The program is co-sponsored by the Section on Comparative Law.
Please submit an abstract of no more than 400 words and a resume to Section Chair Jeff Hirsch at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 4, 2012. Authors of selected abstracts will be notified before October 1, 2012.
