Youth Voice II: Representation Beyond the Workplace

Session Organizers:
Andy Hodder and Lefteris Kretsos
Friday, 3 July 2015: 4:00 PM-5:30 PM
TW2.1.01 (Tower Two)
This is the second of two sessions focusing on the representation and voice of young people, inviting papers on union responses to the rise in precarious employment and youth unemployment; union strategies aimed at increasing the recruitment and representation of young people; and alternative forms of voice and representation beyond traditional union structures. It is crucial that young people in the labour market have a voice, and as such, we are interested in receiving national and comparative narratives from around the world.
