Desiree LeClerq sends word that Cornell's ILR Review has issued a call for proposals for a virtual workshop and subsequent publication on Labor Transformation and Regime Transition: Lessons from the Middle East and North Africa. Here's the detailed CFP; here's a brief description:
Scholars interested in participating should submit an abstract of up to 500 words to the conference organizers by January 22, 2021. Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be invited to present a paper at a virtual workshop co-sponsored by the School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University and the Project on Middle East Political Science, to be held on April 29–30, 2021. Papers presented at this workshop should be substantially completed, but invited participants will have the opportunity to receive feedback from scholars of industrial relations and the politics of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) at the workshop. Based on this workshop, a subset of authors will be asked to submit their paper to the ILR Review to be considered for part of a special themed section in a future issue of the journal.
