Globalisation and Labour Markets

Nottingham, UK, July 2000

The Centre for Research on Globalisation and Labour Markets (GLM), based at the University of Nottingham in the UK, hosted a conference on the theme of “Globalisation and Labour Markets” in July 2000.

Proceedings from the conference have been published as a volume by MacMillan in 2002, edited by David Greenaway, Richard Upward and Katharine Wakelin under the title:” Trade, Investment, Migration and Labour Market Adjustment”.

The conference was organised around four themes, and included two overview papers by Professors Jagdish Bhagwati (Columbia University) and Andre Sapir (University of Brussels).

The focus for the Centre is the application of economic analysis to understand more clearly the links between changes in patterns of international trade, cross-border investment and labour market outcomes. The Centre supports both basic scientific and policy-focused research. The core staff of the Centre comprises a group of Research Fellows based at Nottingham, and a cadre of Fellows from a range of other Universities in the UK and overseas.
