WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON? OBJECTIVITY, BIAS AND PARTISANSHIP IN RESEARCH: THE CASE OF EMPLOYMENT RELATIONS
A special lecture to be given by Ralph Darlington to recognise and celebrate his recent Emeritus Professorship. This lecture critiques the claim that employment relations research is objectively value-free and argues that in reality many ER academics in Britain have tended to start from a social democratic premise which makes them relatively more sympathetic to the interests and objectives of workers and their unions than to the business needs of employers and managers. This will take place on 21 May.
LEARNING DISABILITIES- PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE
