Thursday, 23 April, 2015

Dr Mona Mustafa, Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Business, recently represented the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) at a global business conference held in Athens.

The ‘International Labour Process’ conference was organised by the University of Sterling and saw delegates from 32 countries join together to discuss the latest trends in global labour issues with a prime focus on the Greek economic crisis.

Over the course of the conference, Dr Mustafa presented her recent research on work-life boundaries, which has recently been published by the Human Resource Management Journal.

Dr Mustafa was joined by a plethora of high profile speakers, including Czech Ambassador Jan Bondy, Margus Rava, the Estonian Ambassador, and Pauli Makela, the Finnish Ambassador, who discussed labour relations and minimum wage arrangements across EU member states. Alkisitis Tsoulakou from Nokia/Siemens also discussed alternatives to austerity in Greece and beyond.
