Bio

Andrew Stevens is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Business Administration at the University of Regina. His research and teaching specializes in labour relations, issues of work and employment, migrant and foreign labour settlement in Saskatchewan, and collective bargaining. Andrew gained an international perspective on the challenges facing workers around the world after conducting field work in India, the UK, Switzerland, and Belgium.

Upon returning to Saskatchewan in 2012 from Kingston, Ontario where he completed his PhD, Andrew was quick to join a handful of progressive organizations in Regina. He is an active board and executive member with Briarpatch Magazine, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the Unemployed Workers Help Centre, and the Regina and District Labour Council. Andrew has also been a volunteer with the Regina Open Door Society, where he helped a Syrian refugee family settle in the city.
