This presentation aims to consider what a labour regime analysis brings to an understanding of trade-based economic integration and the geographical expansion of global production networks facilitated by free trade agreements (FTAs).
This presentation draws upon empirical research looking at the European Union free trade agreement with South Korea to explore the consequences for labour regimes of deeper integration of a lead sector (automotives) into global production networks and trade relationships.
To do so, this study deploys a framework for understanding the multi-scalar and nested nature of labour regimes.
Ranging from the politics of production in the workplace, to local labour control regimes, to national frameworks for labour regulation
and how these impact, and in turn are impacted by, integration into global production network configuration which are deepened via the commercial and regulatory regimes of FTAs.
This seminar is free to attend with no need to register in advance.
We warmly invite you to share with your friends, colleagues and classmates.
