Social movement unionism (SMU) is not necessarily antithetical to traditional business unionism concludes Cassandra Engeman in a case study of the 2006 immigrants rights marches in Los Angeles. A former CNS Graduate Fellow and Senior Researcher, Engeman's findings were recently published in the journal, Work, Employment and Society. Engeman's interest in the intersection of social movement theory and worker health and safety also guided much of her work at CNS including participation in a survey of nano-industry employers. She also helped create a database of nongovernmental organizations that engage with nanotechnology and served as a co-organizer of the conference Democratizing Technologies: Assessing the Roles of NGOs in Shaping Technological Futures.
