Free Choice Studies [III Periodi]

This course focuses on current labour market trends in the post-Soviet geographical space, concentrating mainly on Russian, Baltic and Central Asian labour markets. The course starts from the Soviet organisation of work, labour processes, management and industrial relations system. Then, the transitional period of the 1990s is considered, particularly how the Soviet labour market legacies affected the post-Soviet work models. The main emphasis of the course will be on contemporary macro tendencies of cross-country migration - which takes place especially between the Central Asian countries and Russia - segmentation of labour, gender roles, weakening role of the trade unions, and VET (vocational education and training) in the post-socialist countries.

The modes of study in this course are participation to the lectures and writing a 10-page essay based on the lectures, given sources and additional material.

Essay: written on a particular topic or theme. The objective of an essay is  to survey the literature or other material in a particular field. When preparing an essay, the student is expected to clearly define and limit the topic or theme of the essay, to examine and analyse the relevant material and prepare a presentation on the basis of this analysis.

The student should, moreover, familiarise herself with the relevant debates in her field and, insofar as it is possible, consider her own findings in the light of the arguments presented and questions raised in these debates. This procedure also allows the student to show that she is aware of the canonical publications and the current themes discussed in her field.

A presentation that relies entirely on either reporting the contents of the material under inspection or on the student’s personal opinions does not fulfil the requirements for an essay.

The deadline for writing the essay is the end of period III, 6th March 2016.
