Unacceptable Forms of Work: Global Dialogue/Local Innovation

Unacceptable Forms of Work: Global Dialogue/Local Innovation is the product of an international consultation that has involved researchers and policy-makers from 50 research and policy organisations in more than 20 countries across the world. A response to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the report calls for effective labour regulation to secure economic growth and decent work (SDG8).

The report highlights 10 Global Challenges to effective labour rights. It outlines research agendas that are designed to investigate and respond to each of these Global Challenges by eliminating Unacceptable Forms of Work(UFW).

The UFW project is led by Professor Deirdre McCann (University of Durham, UK). Co-Investigators are Professor Judy Fudge (University of Kent, UK) and Dr Sangheon Lee (International Labour Office, Geneva).

The UFW Project was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) through the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).
