Biographies of Plenary Speakers

The 2014 International CRIMT Conference on New Frontiers for Citizenship at Work will take place at HEC Montréal (Montréal, Canada), from Monday May 12th to Wednesday May 14th. This three-day conference is comprised of two complementary activities. One option is to register for the entire three days; the other is to register only for the middle day, which is the one-day Community Forum.

THE ONE DAY OPTION – Community Forum

The Community Forum will take place on Tuesday May 13th. It is specifically designed for actors and practitioners from the world of work. The aim is to encourage a dialogue between research, policy and practitioner communities. Participants will share their responses to a range of questions facing actors in the world of work and debate the practices, policies and institutions most likely to meet the challenges for labour law, for dealing with social risk arising from transformations in the world of work and for promoting both organizational efficiency and employee well-being.

The range of plenary sessions and interactive workshop forums will tackle a wide range of issues including migrant work, working time arrangements and work-life balance, the link between "green" jobs and job quality, the decommodification of labour and decent work in both developed countries and emerging economies, intergenerational equity, democracy and equality at work, income security and social risk, the labour market inclusion of the disabled, and alternative methods for the resolving workplace conflicts.

Registration for the Community Forum Day costs CDN $290 (taxes included), with a special rate of CDN $120 for students, retirees and the unemployed.

THE THREE DAY OPTION – The Entire Conference

In addition to the Community Forum, the conference is also comprised of two Research Days, which will be on Monday May 12th and Wednesday May 14th. These will bring together more than 250 researchers from more than 25 countries, among the best specialists in the world to discuss their most recent research results on transformations in the world of work. The entire three days of the conference are likely to provide a unique learning opportunity and a fruitful dialogue between researchers and practitioners concerned with improving the quality and relevance of research and with providing tools to improve the world of work.


The Registration for the one-day Community Forum (Tuesday May 13th only) or the three-day conference as a whole (from Monday May 12th to Wednesday May 14th, including the Community Forum Day) can be done through the Registration Portal. Please note that the number of places is limited and that planning for the lunches provided with the price of registration requires advance registration.
