Neoliberalism and working condition. A comparative analysis of the working conditions in the coalfields of Asturias and the steel industry in Liège. Cecile Piret. Promotor : Esteban Martinez

My research examines the transformation of the workers' identities and forms of collective claims in the mining industrial regions of Asturias and steel Liege. While major restructuring taking place in these areas, it aims to establish how certain elements of the neoliberal context, for example, the crisis of the criticism of the traditional left, influence the formulation and organization of protests, how they interfere with production possibilities of a workers' identity, it constitutes or not a resource in this context of ''crisis.'' My works are therefore situated at the crossroads of three major areas: working conditions, neoliberalism and collective action.
