This two-day workshop will discuss papers addressing various aspects of (domestic and global) labour market injustice. It will consider the theoretical framing of moral concerns surrounding labour markets – whether they involve interactional or structural dimensions. It will also consider how these concerns are best addressed through individual, policy, and/or institutional action.
