Work in the Global Economy is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that promotes understanding of work, and connections to work, in all forms and dimensions. This can mean a focus on labour processes, labour markets, labour organising and labour reproduction. The Editors welcome wide-ranging contributions that extend and deepen connections between all aspects of the division of labour: from the production networks that underpin the global economy, to the gendered and racial divides that shape how work is allocated and organised.

The journal is associated with, and rooted in, the traditions of the International Labour Process Conference (ILPC) which was established in 1983. The labour process tradition reflects certain priorities, including analysis of the pathways between capitalist political economy and the changing workplace; the centrality of work and its management and regulation to economy and society; and the development of a variety of materialist understandings of those principals.

However, like the conference, the journal adopts a pluralist approach to theory, method and discipline. We also encourage contributions from both emerging and existing scholars. Foregrounding the diverse interests that compose labour and capital in the Global South and North, the journal will promote interdisciplinary and international agendas that have broad appeal to scholars and students of the sociology of work, employment relations and human resource management, organisational studies, political economy, labour geography, labour history and development studies.

We recognise that the journal is being launched at a time of profound change in economy and society that impact on work and employment. Consequently, Work in the Global Economy will be at the forefront of analytical and policy debates exploring issues such as digitalisation, automation, climate change and global health crisis as sites of contestation and transformation.

The journal has an independent editorial structure that reflects geographic, disciplinary and social diversity. We are committed to delivering an intellectually rigorous, supportive and fair reviewing process that can strengthen the vitality and engagement of academic communities.
