Organisational unit: Research Grouping
Staff at the University of Bristol are engaged actively in research and teaching relating to the dynamic subjects of labour law and corporate governance. Their work has covered various aspects of domestic industrial relations and company law in the UK, such as systems of worker participation in corporate structures, information and consultation procedures, protection from individual and collective dismissals, scope for trade union organisation, collective bargaining, and anti-discrimination law. They also have interests in comparative labour law, corporate social responsibility, EU social policy, and protection of workers’ rights under international and regional human rights instruments. Additionally, members of staff are investigating connections between corporate governance, regulation of labour markets and sustainable development, as well as protection of international labour standards through trade and aid conditionality.
