Professor Karen Bravo Speaks on Global Social Contract at Oxford University
The Foundation for Law, Justice and Society at the University of Oxford, in association with Oxford’s Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, has invited a select group of 16 international scholars to a workshop on October 29-31, 2008, to discuss an issue of pressing significance – the social contract and the modern welfare state. The workshop, entitled Work, Employment and Industrial Relations in the New Social Contract brings together scholars from the U.S., the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, Australia, Belgium, Israel, and the Netherlands. Associate Professor Karen Bravo of the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis was selected to participate based on her research on globalization, human trafficking and the transnational labor market. She will present and discuss her paper "Transborder Labor Liberalization: A Path to Enforcement of the Global Social Contract for Labor?"
Oxford’s Foundation for Law, Justice and Society has three principal objectives: to study and reflect on the role of law in international, regional, and national affairs; to identify issues of contemporary interest and importance for detailed study; and to inform policy by making the work of researchers and scholars more accessible to practitioners, whether in government, business, or the law.
