The Centre has encouraged interdisciplinary research since its inception. Its research activities traverse the disciplines of industrial relations, labour history, human resource management, organisational studies and heritage management. It provides a forum for the interchange of ideas, collaborative research and the dissemination of research findings, which cross the boundaries of the above mentioned disciplines.
Visiting scholars to the centre are provided with accommodation in the centre, and in return present formal papers as part of the seminar program or present a key-note address at social functions organised by the centre.
