Conference on Labour, Employment and Work (LEW2020)

The Centre for Labour, Employment and Work at Victoria University of Wellington Te Herenga Waka and the Australia New Zealand Third Sector Research network were jointly hosting their conferences in November 2020.

Unfortunately, due to the uncertain environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic we postponed the conference and are now planning towards holding a full conference in November 2022. 

To bridge the gap between the last conference in 2018 and the 2022 conference we have decided to host a LEW Symposium on 24 November 2021 here at Victoria University of Wellington Te Herenga Waka.  

We are seeking expressions of interest from researchers and/or research groups/centres to present a session or stream on your current or recently completed research in some aspect of labour, employment and work. We have not set a particular theme as we are keen to see what emerges from the submissions. please submit your proposal using our Qualtrics questionnaire by April 30, 2021.

Contact us at with your submission and to be included in our distribution database for updates on the LEW Symposium and 2022 Conference.
