Homeoffice - eine Transformation der Arbeitswelt. Systematischer Überblick und Perspektiven der Gestaltung
Coronakrise und Homeoffice scheinen zwei Seiten einer Medaille zu sein. Durch das Homeoffice lassen sich die Corona-bedingten Kontakteinschränkungen besonders erfolgreich umsetzen. Auf der einen Seite ist die Rede vom damit einhergehenden Beitrag zur Eindämmung der Infektionsrisiken. Auf der anderen Seite lässt sich so die Kontinuität wirtschaftlicher Prozesse sicherstellen. Homeoffice wird mit weiteren Vorteilen in Verbindung gebracht, die vielfach als Fortschritt auf dem Weg zu einer modernen Arbeitswelt gesehen ...
The Containment of Labour Unrest in the Post Socialist China
Due to its transition from the socialist mode of production to the capitalist mode, workers in China have been exposed to the exploitative class relations that they hardly experienced before.

Opportunities and constraints of peri-urban buffalo and dairy cattle systems in Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan
(ICDD, International Center for Development and Decent Work, University of Kassel, 2012-01)
In the big cities of Pakistan, peri-urban dairy production plays an important role for household income generation and the supply of milk and meat to the urban population. On the other hand, milk production in general, and peri-urban dairy production in particular, faces numerous problems that have been well known for decades. Peri-urban dairy producers have been especially neglected by politicians as well as non-government-organizations (NGOs). Against this background, a study in Pakistan’s third largest city, ...
