Studying Job Quality: Looking Back, Looking Forward by Arne Kalleberg

In October 2012, British Sociological Association journal Work, employment and society hosted a one-day conference reflecting on key debates and looking forward to what the future might hold for the discipline and the journal. We are happy to have video footage of the stimulating presentations.

Professor Kalleberg discusses the concept of job quality, indicates why it is important to study, and then illustrates the ways in which this concept has been studied in WES over the past 25 years or so. He also discusses the kinds of research that is needed on this topic in the future.
