NB! Postponed! Webinar on Precarity, Mobility and Transformations at the Workplace

Precarity is usually considered as a result of an increasing fragmentation, uncertainty and flexibility in the labour market. In some cases, this can lead to human trafficking and forced labour in connection with labour migration.

Time

15.12.2020 kl. 15.00 - 17.30

Description

NB! Due to the new Corona/Covid-19 restrictions in Denmark,
the webinar will be postponed.

New event date will be announced as soon as possible.

Precarisation includes both workers with long and short educations as well as workers living permanently and temporarily in Denmark. Based on two current books that explore Precarisation on the labour market, Prekarisering uden grænser (U Press 2020) and Migranters mobilitet. Mellem kriminalisering, menneskehandel og udnyttelse på det danske arbejdsmarked (Aalborg Universitetsforlag 2020), the books together draw a picture of how the workers themselves experience the precarisation and what mechanisms enable these working conditions.

This interdisciplinary seminar focuses on the transformations in the labour market with particular regard to how we can understand these changes through the concept of Precarisation. How can we theorize and apply the concept as an analytical tool? How does it help us to understand migration issues and the relationship between work and unemployment? Is there anything unique about uncertainty in the labour market in the context of the welfare state and the neoliberal logics that have dominated the public administration since the early 1990s? These and other questions will be addressed through a dialogue between the book's authors and academic experts on the labor market in Denmark.

The webinar will be held in Danish .
