2008: SSHRC – International Opportunities Fund

Principal Investigator (PI): SSHRC – International Opportunities Fund. Project tile: “The Great Jump Forward: The Labour Movement Goes Global.” $24,950. This fund was used to gather academics (10), labour officials and graduate students to discuss the global unions and how to study them. A grant proposal for $2.5 million on this theme was submitted to SSHRC for funding. Unfortunately, the proposal was not supported by another SSHRC grant.
