'Uberisation' of work: contemporary subsumption of the very modern and precarious ‘independent worker’

Start: Apr 3, 2017 6:00:00 PM


Dr Ludmila Abilio (University of São Paulo) will examine 'uberisation' as a recent trend in Brazil and beyond it. These labour market trends have in fact been developing for decades, but are now visible and recognizable in a new pattern of precarisation, which will be referred to in this presentation as the uberisation of work. The analysis is based on the results of two empirical researches, one on motorcycle couriers – currently more than 300 thousand workers in Sao Paulo city -- and the other on cosmetic resellers in the city of São Paulo – more than 1,4 million in Brazil.

In the Shadow of the USA: Canada’s Development of an ‘Americas Strategy’ since the Second World War

Start: Apr 26, 2017 6:00:00 PM

UCL Institute of the Americas
Dr Hector Mackenzie (Global Affairs Canada; Carleton University) - One of the distinctive emphases of recent Canadian foreign policy has been its attempt to develop an overall strategy for Canada’s relations with the Americas and the treatment of its bilateral and multilateral dealings with its neighbours in the Western Hemisphere as one of its key priorities in foreign, trade and development policies. This lecture places this initiative in the context of Canada’s post-1939 international relations and especially the historical tendency of Canadian governments to pay greater attention to the North Atlantic and especially to relations with the United States and, to a lesser extent, the United Kingdom and considerably less to the rest of the world, including Latin America and the Caribbean.
