Measuring varieties of industrial relations in Europe: A quantitative analysis - Executive summary

The 2016 study Mapping key dimensions of industrial relations defined industrial relations as ‘the collective and individual governance of work and employment’. It developed a conceptual framework for mapping industrial relations, identifying four key dimensions: industrial democracy, industrial competitiveness, social justice, and quality of work and employment. A follow-up study was conducted to apply the conceptual framework at national level. The study produced a dashboard of 45 indicators, providing a tool to analyse national industrial relations systems across the EU. This analysis showed that a dashboard measuring the complex reality of industrial relations across EU Member States is a valuable tool for comparative research and for policymakers, social partners and stakeholders at EU and national level.
