We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting registrations for the Centre for Labour Studies (CLS) Research Conference 2024, to be held at the University of Malta (Valletta Campus) at 17:00 - 20:30 on the 15 February 2024.
The CLS Research Conference is a free and public event, where CLS academics and students will be sharing the findings of their original research. The conference also aims to provide CLS students, alumni, researchers, academics, and others who are interested in the world of work and related topics with a forum in which to discuss these important topics.
Academics will present original findings about the world of work in Malta. Dr Luke Fiorini will discuss perceptions of trade unions in Malta, taking into consideration the views of both members and non-members. Prof. Manwel Debono’s presentation will analyse the relation between perceived shop stewards’ effectiveness and members’ attitudes. Prof. Anna Borg and Dr Krista Bonello will present preliminary findings from their qualitative study of the working experiences of South Asian third-country nationals in Malta. Prof. Godfrey Baldacchino will be opening the conference.
Following this, two concurrent sessions will be held where recent students of the Bachelor in Work and Human Resources (Hons) and the Bachelor in Occupational Health and Safety (Hons) will present findings from their theses. There will be a prize-giving ceremony (thanks to Simonds Farsons Cisk plc and the Farsons Foundation) where awards will be given to those with the best dissertations and overall classification.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Registration and additional information about the conference are available online.
