30.10.2017 - 30.10.2017 The Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of the Republic of Uruguay and the Wage Project, in collaboration with the International Labour Office and the MESHS Lille (France),

The Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of the Republic of Uruguay and the Wage Project, in collaboration with the International Labour Office and the MESHS Lille (France), are organizing an international symposium on “Wages in Latin America since the 1950s /60s” on 30 and 31 October 2017, at the University of the Republic of Uruguay, in Montevideo.

Wages in Latin America since the 1950s /60s
30th-31st October 2017
Universidad de la República, Faculty of Social Sciences, Montevideo, Uruguay

The symposium aims at:
- A general scientific inventory on the subject (by sampling themes)
- The establishment of a coordinated cross-country research program under the WAGE project
- A targeted partnership with companies and entrepreneurs: a concrete analysis of the wage strategy of companies (surveys) and of professional and employers' unions

The main themes of the symposium are:
1- Evolution of average wages and their modalities of dispersion since the 1950s / 60s
2- Relations between skills and wages (especially for young people and women).
3- Role of the wage differential in migration processes (internal / external).

The Latin American countries present a number of specific wage characteristics: a certain heterogeneity and unequal differentiation of available data, an annual average increase since the 2000s higher than that of the advanced countries, almost until 2015, but lower than that of the countries, significant gender wage gap, a high Gini coefficient, a certain weight of migration issues in national labour markets, the strained question of employability and wages of young people, some complexity in labour relations

The available literature allows a first promising inventory- The salary issues in the region concerned deserve further study and systematization: see the successive versions of the Global Wage Report, biennial since 2008, ILO, Geneva, (last copy in December 2016 for 2016/2017, on line)- Ewout Frankema, Has Latin America Always Been Unequal?

Nach wie vor nimmt das „heilige Dreieck“(S. 575) von Ernest Gellner, Benedict Anderson und Eric Hobsbawm eine dominante Stellung in der Nationalismusforschung ein.[1] Dies geht mit der etablierten Dichotomie eines zivilen und eines ethnischen Nationalismus einher, die mit einer geografischen Teilung in West- und Osteuropa zusammenfällt.
