Includes bibliographical references and index.ISBN: 9781107603691.Subject(s): Europe | Industrial relations | European industrial relationsDDC classification: 658.315094 Summary: This book has both empirical and theoretical goals. The primary empirical goal is to examine the evolution of industrial relations in Western Europe from the end of the 1970s up to the present. Its purpose is to evaluate the extent to which liberalization has taken hold of European industrial relations and institutions through five detailed, chapter-length studies, each focusing on a different country and including quantitative analysis. The book offers a comprehensive description and analysis of what has happened to the institutions that regulate the labor market, as well as the relations between employers, unions, and states in Western Europe since the collapse of the long postwar boom. The primary theoretical goal of this book is to provide a critical examination of some of the central claims of comparative political economy, particularly those involving the role and resilience of national institutions in regulating and managing capitalist political economies. • Essential reading for researchers and students interested in comparative politics and industrial relations • Argues that liberalization of industrial relations has been a universal tendency among European countries over the last thirty-five years • Offers a comprehensive description and analysis of what has happened to the institutions that regulate the labor market, as well as the relations between employers, unions, and states in Western Europe since the end of the 1970s https://www.cambridge.org/us/academic/subjects/politics-international-relations/comparative-politics/trajectories-neoliberal-transformation-european-industrial-relations-1970s?format=PB
