INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS AND CO-DETERMINATION

The labour market actors (labour, management, trade unions, state, etc.) are embedded in institutional structures that shape the relationships between these actors.

The research area ‘industrial relations and co-determination’ addresses issues of regulation of these relationships and participation at an individual, sectoral and international level.

The research is focused on the following topics:

  • Company and external co-determination
  • Analysis of national institutions and industrial relations practices
  • International comparison at sectoral level
  • International collective bargaining
  • Practices of European Works Councils
  • Development of international framework agreements
