Transnationalisation and internationalisation of work and organisations

The focus of the “Transnationalisation” priority is on the social phenomena of economic globalisation and related social practices and forms of organisation. These include internationalisation strategies of multinational companies, the emergence of transnational labour markets and social movements dealing with the undesirable consequences of globalisation in social and socio-political terms. One aim of the work in this field is to develop a theoretical foundation for research on transnational advocacy that incorporates both work and organizational sociological approaches and combines them in an innovative way (Hauser-Ditz et al. 2010/2015; Hertwig 2016 see Publications).
