SOAS University of London

Labour, Movements and Development

The ‘Labour, Movements and Development’ research cluster investigates changing employment relations, class relations and identities under neo-liberal globalisation, as well as social and political action undertaken by labour and for labour. Through both theoretical and empirical investigations those academics who are part of this cluster work on processes of informalisation, labour standards, inequality, labour and social movements and policies relating to labour and the labour relation. They also provide policy recommendations for movements, governments and international organisations.

Call for applications: SEWA internship for SOAS students!

The Labour, Movements and Development research cluster is proud to announce the new call for SEWA internships open to SOAS students.

SEWA (Self Employed Women’s Association) is a trade union of women workers in the informal sector. SEWA takes a unique approach of combining development and struggle –besides organizing and mobilizing members to increase their collective strength and bargaining power, SEWA also reaches members in every stage of their lifecycle through various programs that address the myriad vulnerabilities they are subject to as unprotected and minimally paid workers of the informal sector.

SEWA Bharat is offering an internship to SOAS Development Studies students with an interest in labour and gender. The internship starting in November will last 6 months, and will be based in Delhi. A modest stipend will be given to the interns to cover some part of their living expenses. During this period, the intern will be expected to carry out the following project. Details available via the link below.
