From a National to a Transnational System - Industrial Relations in Motion (engl.)

Seminar: From a national to a transnational system – industrial relations in motion.  

The following course offers a theoretical and a practical understanding of industrial relations in a global environment. Whilst acknowledging that industrial relations was originally a national construct, globalization, in particular the fall of trade barriers and the growing mobility of capital, has resulted in the emergence of industrial relations institutions that surpass national borders. As a consequence we no longer solely talk about German works councils and collective bargaining, for example, but increasingly about European works councils, transnational agreements and European coordinated collective bargaining. In short, industrial relations have become more complex.
