Earlier this year, I asked readers of this website to help me with some research by completing a survey. This was for a Masters dissertation I was doing for the International Labour and Trade Union Studies course at Ruskin College, Oxford. It’s a great course with experienced and supportive tutors, and a wide range of students from all over the world. I recommend it highly.
The subject of my dissertation was Cyberunions: new technologies, distributed discourse and union renewal, and I submitted it at the end of June.
It has just been marked, and I got a distinction for it, so I am confident that it is a reasonable piece of work. If you’re interested, you can download it here.
It is, of course, long, and you may find nothing new in it: I have posted many of the key insights on this site. But if you’re researching a similar field, there might be some things in it that are useful to you.
At some point I hope to create a user-friendly summary of it – I’ll keep you posted.
