Labour relations and modes of employment


See video

This WP establishes at first theoretical frameworks of labour market models, analysing how far national labour markets conform to them. It analyses then the political economy of the labour market models, taking into account the role of the different social partners involved in employment relations. This creates a basis for discussion of the outcomes from different models in terms of balance between demand and supply on the labour market, or of differing levels of social cohesion. Finally, it looks at the impact of the labour market models on innovation and the adoption of ICT.
