RDW is a collaboration between researchers at the International Labour Organization (ILO), the University of Amsterdam’s Amsterdam Institute for Labour Studies / Hugo Sinzheimer Instituut (AIAS-HSI), the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law (CELRL), Jawaharlal Nehru University’s Centre for Informal Sector and Labour Studies (CISLS), the University of Durham’s Law School (DLS), the Cornell University’s ILR School, the University of Duisburg-Essen’s Institut Arbeit und Qualifikation (IAQ), the Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA), the Korea Labor Institute (KLI), the University of Manchester’s Work and Equalities Institute (WEI), and academic and policy institutions from across the world. The network is interdisciplinary and involves researchers from a range of fields including economics, law, sociology, development studies, industrial relations and geography.
The activities of the RDW network have two main objectives:
- to highlight and advance research on integrating labour rights into economic growth strategies
- to make available to as wide as possible an audience a principled and coherent argument for retaining and advancing labour rights in the globalized economy.
