European, national and Transnational Industrial Relations: Visible and Invisible Hands in European and National Wage Settings – ENTIRE VIEW

This project, coordinated by Prof. Bernd Brand al the Durham University Business School, is funded by the European Commission to investigate and analyse the reasons for differences in wage developments within the European Union (EU) member states. This project will analyse if and how industrial relations structures and mechanisms can cope with changes to the socioeconomic environment and in particular with policies derived from the European Semester and the Economic and Monetary Union, but also with the goals defined in the Europe 2020 strategy.

The project aims to identify and map potential clusters of countries with similar wage developments and similar characteristics of the industrial relations system (with a focus on the governability of wage developments).
It will also identify how deep industrial relations actors in the European Union are ‘interconnected’ with each other and what networks exist (i.e. sector or country).
The investigation will also highlight which industrial relations structures and mechanisms in what country (or group of countries) are able to coordinate their behaviour and outcomes transnationally in order to meet transnational (defined) policy goals and thus are compatible with European policies which arise from the European Semester but also from a common currency.
