Doctoral Details

The main unit of analysis of my research is temporary agency work in South Africa. More specifically, the research aims to evaluate the character, impact, regulatory framework and social/institutional context of temporary agency work in South Africa. One of the primary objectives is to find out how temporary agency work in South Africa is influenced by the interplay between the pressures of the economy (the driving trends); the norms of the ILO (decent work); the local actors and their institutional structures (trade unions and employer organisations).
