Nicolas Pons-Vignon

I am a Professor of labour transformation and social innovation at SUPSI, in Southern Switzerland. Before that I worked for 17 years in South Africa, mostly at Wits University, where I taught heterodox development economics. My research focuses on care work, labour inspection, and the political economy of public policy - with a special interest in New Public Management and its nefarious effects. I have worked closely with unions, in South Africa and in Switzerland, and been an associate of the GLU for 15 years. I created and edited for many years the Global Labour Column and am currently an editor of the Global Labour Journal.
