Description
This panel asks to what extent labour market segmentation, i.e., the divide between standard employment and atypical forms of employment, self-employment, and informal work, is influenced by employment regulation. In this regard, the balance between particularistic status protection – often associated with the standard employment relationship - and universal labour standards seems to be crucial. High regulatory standards may go along with strong labour market segmentation and provoke exclusion, while universal standards may lead more integrated labour markets, but may be limited to minimum protection levels.

Furthermore, the panel is interested in how the compliance with labour regulation shapes labour market structures. This touches on possible discrepancies between de-jure regulation and the de-facto implementation and enforcement of labour standards. These discrepancies might explain why countries with similar de-jure protection levels vary in their degree of labour market segmentation. The main goal is the identification and explanation of different “Worlds of Labour”, i.e., groups of countries that resemble each other regarding their de-jure/de-facto employment regulation and/or labour market structures.

We encourage researchers and research groups from all around the world to share their findings on the relation between particularistic and universal labour standards, on “good governance” and the discrepancy between de-jure and de-facto labour regulation, and on the impact of “legal” (de-jure) segmentation on (de-facto) labour market segmentation and informal work. We also welcome studies that deal with specific outcomes of labour regulation such as gendered employment patterns or inequal treatment of particular groups of (atypical) workers. While focusing explicitly on comparative research, we encourage both quantitative analysis and case studies.

A second discussant and chair will be selected from a different region when applications are available.

This roundtable is based on a special issue forthcoming in the International Labour Review. Applying a global perspective, the special issue focuses on law-induced inequalities in labour markets. It asks: Which forms of legal segmentation can be found? And how do they infuence labour market segmentation and informal work in different regions of the world? How can they be remedied?

The workshop seeks to understand how diffusion processes influence family policy across a wide range of contexts by discussing three main sets of questions with pre-eminent experts of family policy and diffusion processes:

  • What models of family policy are promoted by international organizations? Do we find conflict among IOs or is a consensual, taken-for-granted paradigm emerging within world-culture?
  • Have these global models left imprints on national legislation and policy making? How do we identify the impact and institutionalization of global models in national contexts?
  • Which mechanisms and linkages can plausible the explain the connection between global norms and national policy outputs? How do we conceptualize and measure these influences and what alternative linkages need to be considered?


Family policy provides an eminent test case for theories of policy diffusion, since it is inherently linked to local values and beliefs about ‘proper’ families, i.e. deep-seated cultural and normative commitments. Processes of convergence may be indicative of the causal force of ‘normative isomorphism’ emanating from global structures, but also needs to be assessed against possible alternative explanations. Specifically, other channels of diffusion, which work through the emulation of and learning from peers, may produce similar outcomes. The workshop addresses how the effects of ‘vertical’ diffusion processes can analytically and empirically be separated from ‘horizontal’ ones in the field of family policy.

30.04.2021 Workshop

Eurocentrism in Academia

Jude Kagoro; Hawa Noor Mohammed; Alex Nadège Ouedraogo
Veranstaltungsort


Bremen
Uhrzeit
12:15 - 13:45 Uhr

How come, that in our studies we deal almost exclusively with European and North American theorists and scholars? How and to which extent do they, with their self-references and focus on Europe, displace and ignore the experience and perspectives of other scholars? And what concrete problems for science and non-European scholars arise from the burden of Eurocentrism in academia?

This and more we would like to discuss with you in an event series of the Politschnack. Our guests in the introductory session on 30th of April at 12:15 (c.t.) concerning “Eurocentrism in Academia” will be:

Alex Nadège Quedraogo (InIIS/SFB 1342), who will talk about the general problematic consequences of Eurocentrism in academia, Hawa Noor Mohammed (BIGSSS), who will talk about the discourse of Eurocentrism with reference to research on the so called “New Terrorism” or “Islamic (st) Terrorism” and Jude Kagoro (InIIS), who will talk about the burden of Eurocentrism in the interpretation of Politics in Africa. All of our guests are political scientists and researchers at University Bremen.

No matter if you would like to discuss or only listen, if you are student or staff: you are very much welcome! The discussion will take place via Zoom. If you would like to participate, feel free to join by clicking on the link below. The discussion will be held in English:

Prof. Jennifer Pan, PhD (Stanford University) will give a presentation on her recent publication "Welfare for Autocrats: How Social Assistance in China Cares for Its Rulers". Join via Zoom here.

Jennifer Pan is an Assistant Professor of Communication at Stanford University. Her research focuses on political communication and authoritarian politics. Pan uses experimental and computational methods with large-scale datasets on political activity in China and other authoritarian regimes to answer questions about how autocrats perpetuate their rule. How political censorship, propaganda, and information manipulation work in the digital age. How preferences and behaviors are shaped as a result.

Her book, Welfare for Autocrats: How Social Assistance in China Cares for its Rulers (Oxford, 2020) shows how China's pursuit of political order transformed the country’s main social assistance program, Dibao, for repressive purposes. Her work has appeared in peer reviewed publications such as the American Political Science Review, American Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Politics, and Science.

BIGSSS Doctoral Colloquium

via Zoom, https://zoom.us/j/98266944212?pwd=MUFpK2ZrZ2VxTHU4SFpsaWdvRytnUT09

Organizers: Dr. Steffen Bandlow-Raffalski / Dr. Mandy Boehnke

Goal and Format

The colloquium offers the opportunity to present current issues (could be questions regarding your methods design, theoretical framework etc.), (first) results of individual dissertation projects or drafts of conference or journal papers and to discuss them with fellows and faculty. Presenters should make clear what they want from the discussion and send these expectations together with at least an abstract of their topic to the participants. The presentation itself should not exceed 25-30 minutes. Typically, presentations will get a short (5-7 min) comment by an expert faculty member or fellow to be followed by an open discussion with the audience. The fellows-first rule applies.
