Summary: The report reviews the literature on the impact of globalisation and European integration on industrial relations, especially within Europe. In particular it discusses the extent to which industrial relations systems are themselves being ‘Europeanised’. The analytical framework provides an overview of the connections between globalisation, European integration and the various processes of economic and social modernisation which are influencing changes in society. The report presents different theories of industrial relations and considers several aspects of the Europeanisation phenomenon: European works councils, EU-level employment policy, European social dialogue, European coordination of collective bargaining and the involvement of the various actors in European economic, social and employment policies.
