Labour activism, mobility, and marginalization in a time of precarity

Date and Location

CAWLS’ 7th annual conference, as part of Congress 2021, will take place online from June 1 to June 3.

Traditional: a series of short (7 to 10-minute) live presentations followed by a Q&A.
Interactive: a series of presentations or papers posted for viewing before the conference with a live discussion and Q&A during the conference.
Panel: A discussion among 3-5 panelists on a common question or issue.
