The Work, Employment and Society 2013 Conference has an international focus and comes at a critical time for the study of work. Like the journal, the conference is sociologically oriented, but welcomes contributions from related fields.

Over the past few years, unprecedented state intervention in the economy and subsequent radical reform plans for the public sector and the welfare state have raised new questions on the ways work is socially regulated: the WES 2013 conference will bring together sociologists of work from across the globe to assess the evidence and consider the theoretical implications of changing relations between work, society and the state.
