  • The Maritime Dimension of Transnational Organized Crime in Indonesia

  • Researchers in the Work and Organisations cluster share an interest in investigating all forms of work, employment and worker identities in relation to organisational practices as well as institutional structures.

    Our research examines topics such as the nature and implications of changing employment relations and inter-organisational dynamics (e.g. practices of fissuring and outsourcing); labour markets and migration; new and historical forms of organising work; entrepreneurship and individual experiences of paid and unpaid labour. As such, our research supports contemporary, historical and comparative studies and both qualitative and quantitative methodologies.
