ReWAGE - Renewing Work Advisory Group of Experts



'Increasing pay need not be inflationary' - ReWAGE experts in the British Academy Journal

A new British Academy Journal article, introduced by ReWAGE expert Paul Edwards, brings together thought-leaders from the fields of economics, sociology and social policy, including ReWAGE expert Jill Rubery, to consider inflation, wages and equality in the UK today.

In the article ‘Inflation, wages and equality: cross-disciplinary conversations’, the group considers such subjects as whether trade unions cause inflation or inflation cause trade unions, and the parallels with the 1970s for today’s conflicts over real living standards.

Bill to 'sunset' EU laws - ReWAGE summary highlights the need for scrutiny

This week the House of Lords will be continuing its debate on amendments to the EU Retained Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (the so-called REUL Bill) which repeals EU-derived laws in the UK at the end of 2023. ReWAGE expert Professor Catherine Barnard has written a summary of the Bill. This short paper acknowledges the need for expediency but also raises a number of issues, in particular highlighting the importance of clarity of policy, extensive consultation and effective parliamentary scrutiny.
