The Fairness at Work Research Centre (FairWRC) recently held its third international conference focusing on enhancing questions of standards and practices at work.
International Conference, 12 – 13 September 2016
The conference aims to bring together academics and practitioners to discuss issues on the subject of fairness at work in what remains a challenging environment politically and economically.
We carry out research that is relevant to academics, students and practitioners. The Centre consists of around sixty members from across four Schools in the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Manchester, with backgrounds in economics, sociology, psychology, law and management studies.
Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, these leading-edge research briefings focus on how organisations and individuals have tried to sustain and enhance fairness at work in a challenging environment.
There are around sixty active members of the Centre, comprising staff from across four Schools in the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Manchester. We have an active and lively group of doctoral students researching contemporary issues and concerns.
