Self-Determination: Politics and the Workplace
The paper takes core concepts of control and participation, and explores the implications for the workplace of status difference, human rights and self determination. It draws on an international conference, and is linked to ongoing research on slavery and citizenship. Responsibilities and accountability tend to be blurred, and law is often not enforced. The paper explores ways forward, and seeks to make sense of continuing silences.
