Bradon Ellem - SOCSI Visitor
The purpose of my visit:
To develop international research linkages in general and discuss global and comparative research projects examining various aspects of trade union crisis and renewal.
Who I worked with:
I was working with Professor Peter Fairbrother and also colleagues in the Business School chiefly Professor Ed Heery.
What I gained from my visit:
We have developed links between the University of Sydney's Union Strategy Research Group and scholars at Cardiff which will underpin future conferences and seminars as well as specific research projects. The intellectual and social environment at Cardiff was extremely hospitable and I gained a great deal from my time there.
