COURSE OFFERINGS




CHALLENGES AND INNOVATION IN LABOR POLICY
Public Policy 290
Course number: 15281
Schedule: Wednesday, 9:30 – 11:30 AM
Location: Conference room, Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (IRLE) at 2521 Channing Way (near Telegraph Ave.)
The UC Berkeley Labor Center is offering a graduate level course that will give graduate students the opportunity to gain real world experience conducting research with a local community partner.  We hope graduate students from all departments, not just Public Policy, will consider enrolling in this course. The course instructor is Anibel Ferus-Comelo. 

This applied research and project-based seminar offers students the opportunity to study economic justice issues, while developing and honing research skills that can shape campaigns to improve the lives of working families. In partnership with local labor unions and worker organizations, we will address priority questions that have emerged in ongoing organizing and advocacy campaigns. Students will work hands-on with existing data sets or engage in original data collection, with training and guidance in the application of data science tools to support workers’ interests in the Bay Area. The specific campaigns, to be identified by our community partners, are likely to address the affordable housing crisis, future of work and workers, and immigration. The class will culminate in presentations of findings, analyses, and policy recommendations to key community stakeholders and policymakers. Through a combination of lectures, key readings, and active participation in a “live” research initiative, students will develop an understanding of the current challenges that the labor movement in California faces and contribute to innovative policy advocacy and political action
