Abstract

In Denmark the labor market is strongly regulated by collective agreements and influential labor market organisations. It is surrounded by the so-called flexicurity model combining a high level of flexibility with a high level of social security. However, during the last decades the balance between flexibility and security has tipped in favor of flexibility and it is becoming increasingly difficult to acces social benefits. Spite the strong labor market regulation precarious work is spreading in Denmark and tendencies also appear among graduates. Danish trade unions of graduates become increasingly aware that a growing number of their members are affected as well. Fulltime academic permanent jobs are gradually transformed into time-limited, project-based or part time jobs. The question is; how does this affect and change the worklife of graduates?

OtherThe theme for RWL10 is Transitions, Transformations and Transgressions in Work and Learning & Work and Learning Research. While the organisers will consider a variety of contributions, RWL10 will in particular seek to encourage deliberative engagement around these questions: •What transitions, transformations or transgressions are influencing work and learning, as societies confront socio-ecological risks like climate change, economic stagnation, social insecurity and inequalities? •What are the implications of these transitions, transformations and transgressions for the nature of work, worker identity and agency, careers and career guidance, and work-based learning, among other areas of interest? •Does a focus on broader transitions, transformations and transgressions challenge traditional boundaries and framings of work and learning, and the relationship between society, economy, education and work? What is transformative (or not) in RWL research? The conference programme will offer a variety of session types to suit a range of presentation styles and learning needs. This will include keynote presentations, panel and plenary discussions, parallel presentations, roundtables and workshops. Conference numbers will be capped at 350 and delegates can look forward to a convivial environment conducive to exploring collaborations and discussing solutions to meet challenges in current and future scenarios. In addition, the Eastern Cape and South Africa offer unsurpassed Cultural and Eco-tourism Opportunities , exposure to a variety of challenging work environments, and excellent value for money to the discerning and engaged traveler.
