Marie Curie ITN 'ChangingEmployment' eNewsletter, Fourth edition (December 2014)

Welcome to the fourth edition of the ChangingEmployment eNewsletter

This is the fourth eNewsletter of the ChangingEmployment ITN brought to you by Dragos Adascalitei at CEU and Claire Scott, our Network Programme Manager based at Strathclyde. Having survived our mid-term review at Wroclaw in November everyone took a brief pause for breath - just a really brief pause! -  before returning immediately to the field or to begin their engagement in a range of training activities including film making organised jointly and with the participation of our sister Marie Curie network, INTEGRIM based at the CEU in Budapest.   

Our full Theme groups, 1,2 and 3 are now fully engaged in their thematic activities with a number of cross linkages are now in place including work on comparative employment relations (Oviedo, Leuven and ULB) and training initiatives.   Themes 1,2 and 3 are now preparing their projects which are to be presented in a number of academic conferences including Finland and the ESA conference in Prague in August 2015.  Some of the images of the Theme events, including the Wroclaw mid-term review are accessible on our Facebook page.

Theme 2 hosted the second "Sights and Sounds of Migration" at Strathclyde in early December and it was well attended.  The event highlighted the shocking plight of people trafficking in Europe with the movie, Far North.  This was followed by poetry, readings form Irish migrant workers travelling Britain in the 1950s and music from ChangingEmployment's very own 'occasional' band, Rhythms of Resistance (ROR).  Including from the host country Scotland, ROR is made up of musicians from a range of diasporas: from Ireland, Hungary, Nigeria and Australia. Some of the bands performance was captured in video and can be found on our Facebook page..
Yet again we hope that everyone can enjoy our work and feel able to contact our ESRs directly in areas that are of interest to them.
