The British Journal of Industrial Relations (BJIR) is calling for papers for a special issue of the Journal devoted to the regulation of occupations. The objective is to re-examine the extent and influence of occupational regulation in nations around the world. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: – the antecedents of occupational regulation; – the wage and employment implications of occupational regulation; – the relationship between government regulation of occupations and other labour market institutions, such as unions; – case analysis of specific occupations; – the price effects on services of occupational licensing the implications of the regulation for consumer satisfaction and safety of their services.
A selection of papers will be chosen for presentation at a special conference to be held at the Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) of the London School of Economics in March 2018. Financial assistance is available for those presenting papers at the symposium. The papers presented at the conference will be included, subject to BJIR’s refereeing process, in a special issue of the journal which will be published after the conference.
