The overarching theme of 2018 NWLC is how to create a sustainable future of work in the Nordic countries in a time of rising levels of inequality and exclusion in working life. Challenges such as low-wage competition, skewed power relations, the future of collective bargaining, technological and organizational changes and availability, standards and content of work will be addressed.

The 2018 NWLC will take place in Oslo, Norway, and we welcome fellow researchers and practitioners from within as well as outside the Nordic countries to participate in this important conference.
