History of Labour Relations 1500-2000

05 November 2018 - 9:18

The International Institute of Social History is working on a Global Collaboratory on the History of Labour Relations in the period 1500-2000. 

The Global Collaboratory on the History of Labour Relations is a collaborative effort to study labour relations in a global perspective. The project has two main goals. First, to provide statistical insights into the global distribution of all types of labour relations (systematically including women's and child labour) in five historical cross-sections: 1500, 1650, 1800, 1900, [Africa: 1950], and 2000. Second, to explain the signalled shifts in labour relations worldwide.

More information on the project can be found on the Data Website: https://datasets.iisg.amsterdam/dataverse/labourrelations

If you want more information about the project, please contact Prof. Dr. Karin Hofmeester: kho@iisg.nl.

The project is sponsored by the Gerda Henkel Stiftung, Düsseldorf and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
