International Perspectives on Insecure Employment

Friend-of-blog Susan Bisom-Rapp (Thomas Jefferson) forwards along the following note about some important publications in an online Canadian journal:

The theme of issue 58 of Papers in Political Economy (Revue Interventions Economiques) is the Grey Zones of Work (Les Zones Grises du Travail). Edited by Professor Corrine Siino (University of Toulouse Jean Jaures (France)) and Professor Sid Ahmed Soussi (University of Quebec at Montreal (Canada)), the issue features seven papers produced by affiliated researchers of the Grey Zone Project (Projet ZOGRIS), an international, interdisciplinary research project financially supported by Agence Nationale de la Rechereche ANR (France). ANR is the French equivalent of the National Science Foundation in France. The papers explore from a number of perspectives the rise of insecure employment in several countries, including the U.S. Special thanks go to Professor Donna Kesselman (University of Paris East Creteil), the organizer of Projet ZOGRIS. Susan and her co-author Professor Urwana Coiquaud (HEC Montreal (Canada)) have a paper included in the issue: The Role of the State towards the Grey Zone of Employment: Eyes on Canada and the United States (available here).

Professor Bisom-Rapp is a leading scholar on both US and comparative employment law (check out here recent book with Cambridge University Press here), and we appreciate the heads-up on this recent publication!
