It was hosted by University of Turku and Turku Centre for Labour Studies, TCLS . The conference valorized the vast field of research on work from different disciplinary perspectives. The conference programme brought together researchers with four exellent keynote sessions and sessions with 160 presentations, all of which offered excellent platforms for fruitful discussions. See the book of Abstracts .
