Abstract

rs, Professor Ernest Aryeetey, Professor Craig Jeffrey, and Professor Peter Rosa, along with all the other participants, provided useful feedback and encouraged us to proceed with presenting the key project findings in book form. A string of people provided support for the project and the book along the way. At the host institution – the Department of Geography, University of Copenhagen – the untiring assistance of Dorthe Hallin with the accounts was invaluable, and in the closing stages Kent Pørksen kindly helped produce the maps at short notice. Wisdom Kalenga and Cecilia Gregersen both spent time at CBS providing assistance with the data analysis and conference support. Maheen Pracha did an excellent job editing the entire manuscript while Jo Woods assisted in the final checking and layout. Thanks are also due to Faye Leerink at Routledge for seeing the potential of the book and for agreeing to allow it to be subsequently published in sub-Saharan Africa, which we hope will ensure it is also widely read there. As all of the project participants spent lengthy periods of time in the field and/ or visiting other academic institutions, many families have had to cope with these absences. We thank them for their forbearance and for supporting the respective team members in their studies and travels. Hopefully they feel it was worthwhile in the end. While producing this book has been a major effort, it marks the end of an era that started back in November 2008 when we first started devising the project in response to a call from FFU for projects on youth employment. We are extremely grateful to all of the “YEMP family”, as the project team came to be known, for their dedication to the project and for making it such a rewarding and fun experience, and look forward to future collaboration

Abstract

This book is inspired by, and dedicated to, Jill Rubery. Jill is a major figure in international debates on inequalities in work and employment. Her intellectual contributions are renowned for both their critical questioning of mainstream theoretical approaches, whether in economics, management, industrial relations or comparative systems, and their attention to real-world empirical detail. Jill’s intellectual roots are with the influential Cambridge economics group researching labour market segmentation in the late 1970s and 1980s during a period when Keynesian economic thought was being eclipsed by neoclassical economics modelling. The research was inter-disciplinary, grounded in data (mostly involving case studies of firms) and driven by an ambitious intellectual agenda that developed theory while also illuminating practical matters of relevance to policy-makers and practitioners.

Abstract

"Towards New Beginnings: Journalists’ Descriptions about Ruptures in Media Work This volume reveals a previously untold view on changes in media work in Finland. Finnish journalists relate their experiences of being made redundant or deciding to resign, and their views on their profession in a time of flux. The data are based on telephone surveys, in-depth interviews and journalists’ written accounts. Journalists are riddled with insecurity about their future. They feel they have borne the brunt of misplaced investments and the economic conjuncture, and their work motivation and creativity have suffered due to recurring layoffs in newsrooms. Support from employment authorities for finding a new job has also been practically non-existent, and coping with a career change has generated further stress and insecurity. However, journalists who have found new employment typically feel more comfortable in these jobs than in their former work. Career shifters have also been able to make use of their journalistic skills in their new jobs and identify themselves as journalists. The authors are from the Research Centre for Journalism, Media and Communication (COMET) at the University of Tampere, Finland. The study was funded by the Finnish Work Environment Fund and the Foundation for Promoting Journalistic Culture (JOKES). "
