IRE2001: Foundations and Current Issues in IR/HR

This subject guide is meant to assist students, particularly those enrolled in IRE2001, with research papers and assignments.

Research Jumpstarts

Need inspiration for a topic for your project? Looking to dive deeper into a subject introduced in class? We've got research jumpstarts on a variety of IRHR subjects to get you started.

While these topics are relevant for many IRE courses, always check with your instructor if you're not sure (especially if that's part of the assignment!). These topics also shouldn't limit you - use these ideas as a jumping off point for something entirely different or take one of these topics and narrow it down, or expand it further, by sector or jurisdiction or anything else. IRHR Library staff can help you find resources on your own ideas or to refine the results of one of these topics.

Browse our jumpstarts here - you'll see the full list on the left. In addition to our research jumpstarts, you'll also find more resources in our other research and course guides.

Looking for something else? Check out our Searching for U of T Libraries' Resources. The IRHR Library is available if you'd like help getting started on your topic.
