CAWLS is co-sponsoring a webinar and panel discussion featuring Joel Bakan, author of The New Corporation.

With CEO compensation soaring, income inequality at all-time highs, the planet facing ecological disaster, and democracy in a precarious situation, Joel Bakan and Jennifer Abbott have again teamed up to make the movie The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel. And, in printed form, from the author of The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power (2004) comes The New Corporation: How “Good” Corporations are Bad for Democracy (2020).

This cry for social justice, deeper democracy and transformative solutions merits close attention from researchers and actors in the world of work. This is why we are convening a conversation in the form of a webinar on The New Corporation, which will take place on Wednesday, March 31st, 11 AM (EST). It is an opportunity to bring together the book author and movie co-creator, Joel Bakan, with a stellar cast of specialists in a dialogue about corporations, work and democracy.


Author and Co-creator: Joel Bakan (University of British Columbia)

Discussants :

Rose Batt (Cornell University)

Isabelle Ferreras (Université catholique de Louvain)

Isabelle Martin (Université de Montréal)

John Peters (Laurentian University)

 This Conversation on The New Corporation is an initiative of the CRIMT Partnership on Institutional Experimentation for Better Work in collaboration with the Canadian Association for Work & Labour studies (CAWLS) and the Canadian Industrial Relations Association (CIRA).
