|Dates:||August 24-28, 2009|
|Description:||15th World Congress of the IIRA - International Industrial Relations Association|
|Location:||Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Sydney, Australia|
|Subject:||The theme of the 15th World Congress continues the emphasis of the Peruvian Congress on the future direction of work and employment relations in this century. Although the concept of globalisation may be over-used, it nevertheless remains evident that most countries in the world face similar pressures arising from the internationalisation of production and services. This Congress will explore how both developed and developing economies are dealing with new challenges arising from the impact of globalisation on the nature of work, organisations and institutions. In particular, new forms of voice and representation for workers will be examined as well as how families and communities are dealing with change.
