The Changing Contours of German Industrial Relations

Walter Müller-Jentsch og Hansjörg Weitbrecht

München 2003. 197 s. ISBN 3-87988-739-x

Germany went through the unique experience of transferring the complete institutional framework of West German industrial relations to the new Bundesländer during the 1990s. The country is now, however, in the process of introducing far-reaching reforms to industrial relations and the labour market. Rather than challenging the German model, European developments have supplemented it and thereby contributed to its stabilization.This volume is dedicated to the participants of the pre-congress of the 13th World Congress of the International Industrial Relations Association (IIRA) at the Free University in Berlin 2003.
