Global Labour Journal

Members of RC 44 (and others!) are invited to submit articles to the Global Labour Journal (GLJ), affiliated to RC44. GLJ is in its fifth year of publication. It is an open access online journal that follows a standard academic double blind peer review process. It is designed to provide a forum for a wide range of research into labour under the condition of globalization. The journal has published on a wide range of labour issues from China, India, North America, Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa, and Latin America. It has also hosted a vigorous debate and series of articles around labour and globalization featuring leading figures such as Michael Burawoy, Ronaldo Munck and Peter Evans. GLJ is quickly establishing itself as a major source of scholarship and debate on global labour issues. Since Autumn 2014, the Global Labour Journal has become the official journal of RC44, co-hosted by the Global Labour University and supported by the International Center for Development and Decent Work (ICDD) in Kassel and the Penn State Center for Global Workers’ Rights.
