    2010 • Bora Laskin National Fellowship

Adelle Blackett
McGill University, Canada / CRIMT

Announcement

Professor Adelle Blackett was awarded the 2010 Bora Laskin National Fellowship in Human Rights to pursue research in contemporary labour law.  Her project will consist of a comparative and international analysis of regulating paid domestic work, drawing on theories of legal pluralism in relation to labour market informality.  

As Blackett explains, the hypothesis of this research is that, for domestic work to be recognized as decent work, it must be regulated both and at once as work like any other and as work like no other.   

The prestigious Bora Laskin National Fellowship in Human Rights is awarded by SSHRC to leading scholars to support multidisciplinary research in the field of human rights.  It is named for the Hon. Bora Laskin, PC, CC, FRSC (1912 - 1984), a Canadian jurist specialized in labour law and constitutional law who served on the Supreme Court of Canada for fourteen years, including a decade as its Chief Justice.

    2010 • Institut de recherche en économie contemporaine (IRÉC)

Marc-Antonin Hennebert
HEC Montréal, Canada / CRIMT

Annonce

Marc-Antonin Hennebert, Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Resources Management at HEC Montréal and CRIMT co-researcher, received the 2009 IRÉC (Institut de recherche en économie contemporaine) prize for the best doctoral thesis. Receiving an award of 10 000 $, the prize was presented to him on the 19th May 2010.  

Marc-Antonin focused on international union solidarity at Quebecor World. His thesis, entitled The transnationalization of union action in multinational corporations : an analysis of the UNI@Quebecor World network, was supervised by Gregor Murray, Professor at the School of Industrial Relations, University of Montreal and Director of CRIMT.  

Marc-Antonin’s thesis seeks to identify the conditions for the emergence of international union alliances. This subject is especially timely as the current context of globalization and, in particular, the effects of the recent financial crisis, have contributed to a resurgence of these types of alliances. According to Robert Laplante, the Director of IRÉC, ‘the author analyses how [these effects] can contribute to the emergence of an opposing force to improve the regulation of the global economy'.  
 
On a theoretical level, the thesis uses the sociology of social networks, a posture which is at the junction of holistic and individualist traditions that have, until now, structured this field of research. Methodologically, the thesis mobilises a case study. The empirical data were taken from documentary analysis and numerous semi-structured interviews with trade unionists active in the alliance which encompassed a dozen countries and four languages.
