I am at a conference about the quality of employment in Europe. If you are interested, check out their website. I talked about the increasingly precarious jobs of maritime workers. I also met someone I have always wanted to meet: prof Krastyo Petkov (see also wiki), a sociologist of labour, also former member of the Bulgarian parliament, and former President of Bulgaria’s labour union confederation.
He (with John Thirkell) wrote a seminal early analysis of labour relations in Eastern Europe. Very exciting!
