Course Description

This seminar course, Gender, Work and Public Policy will explore the relationship between human rights, gender and work issues in the 21st century. We will examine how current and future reality can be shaped by related public policies. Today we live in a period of global transition comparable to the period that followed the Industrial Revolution. It presents us with enormous challenges and opportunities regarding factors we will address in class: economic globalization, government restructuring, work-family balancing, environmental safety at work, gender inequalities and the connection between human rights and dignity at work. We will especially look at public policies that can either impede or advance better overall equality of work-life and family life.
