University of Westminster hosts BUIRA Conference 2014

30 May 2014

Westminster Business School will be hosting BUIRA's (British Universities Industrial Relations Association) annual conference at our Marylebone Campus, from 25 to 27 June.

 ***Please note that registrations for this event are now closed***. For any registrations queries, please contact Maryana Semenyuk at [email protected]

This annual event is open for all BUIRA members and non-members who are academics or students working in industrial relations, labour law, labour economics, human resource or personnel management, industrial sociology, occupational psychology, trade union studies and labour history.

During the conference we'll discuss aspects of work, employment and industrial relations, bringing contributions from a range of disciplines that reflect on the experiences and conditions of workers in today’s rapidly changing labour markets.

For the grand finale, we are organising a dinner at the London Canal Museum, where the London Klezmer Quartet will play.
