Work, institutions and civic society
|This theme explores the relationship between work, family life and relationships. It investigates workers’ and their families’ experiences of changes in the nature of work; the impact of organisational policies and practices on family practices (including flexible employment, work-life balance, equality and diversity, and quality of life and wellbeing); and how new technologies are changing the nature of work, family and the boundary between these.Research considers the on-going impact of economic change and government responses to work-life and care issues. Our research in this area is multidisciplinary, uses a range of theoretical and methodological approaches, and informs policy and practice across different domains.
