Theorizing Regulatory Challenges of Transnational Labor

Podcast June 07, 2022

Karen Shire | University of Duisburg-Essen

Scholar in Residence Lecture Part 1

Building on theoretical discussions in the economic sociology of markets and labor sociology, Shire proposes a reconceptualization of migration as the organization of cross-border labor markets. The lecture focuses on the multiplicity of market-making actors, the coordination problems specific to the transnational exchange of labor power, and regulatory challenges and solutions in a comparative transnational perspective.
