The Global Labour Journal is an open-access, fully peer-reviewed online journal launched in January 2010. It is the official journal of the International Sociological Association’s Research Committee on Labour Movements (RC44) and is supported by the Center for Global Workers' Rights (CGWR) at Penn State University in State College, USA, and the Department of Business Economics, Health and Social Care (DEASS) at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) in Manno, Switzerland. It is co-hosted by the Global labour University (GLU) and the Society, Work and Politics Institute (SWOP) at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Journal serves as a forum to capture the plentiful and diverse scholarly work emerging on labour activities worldwide. It seeks to explore the role of globalisation in breaking down boundaries between the global/local and the public/private as they relate to labour activities.

Our aim is to provide a global forum for scholarly work on a comparative sociology of labour movements. Thus our intention is to understand, record and promote the transition of the labour movement into a new form of global unionism, and to highlight how labour activities are increasingly shaped by global forces.

Manuscripts may be submitted via this website. Should you have any questions about the suitability of your manuscript for consideration in the Global Labour Journal, or any difficulty in submitting online, please do not hesitate to contact the GLJ Managing Editor.
