The COST Action WORCK organises three international conferences. Each of these conferences addresses a specific conceptual problem for the study of labour and coercion in a long-term and global perspective.
16–19 September 2020: Virtual Conference hosted by CEU Budapest, Hungary
The first WORCK Conference aims to move past the traditional binary of free wage labour vs. unfree labour by exploring the moments and logics of labour coercion within labour relations mediated by remuneration and/or contracts including ostensibly free labour.
Hosts: Susan Zimmermann and Isidora Grubacki
