About This Course

On this course, you will get an introduction to the world of ‘work and employment studies’ (WES), from experts at the Work and Equalities Institute at the University of Manchester, the Department of Work and Employment Studies at the University of Limerick, and Liverpool University Management School.

You’ll explore how global employment conditions have become ever more fragmented and unequal, before examining the different frameworks of power and politics that relate to your workplace, learning how employees can find a voice through trade unions.

Ultimately you’ll explore what the future of work and equalities themselves could look like – and how employment could become more just.

“Almost everyone has to work, but why is it so unequal? This unique, timely, and engaging course pulls back the curtain to reveal the sources of power differentials and ways to redress them. Take this course to become empowered in your work, it’s critically important”

Professor John W. Budd (University of Minnesota, USA)
