New structures, forms and processes of governance in European industrial relations

Paul Marginson co-authored a report, as one of a team led by Evelyne Léonard of the Catholic University of Louvain, for the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions on new structures, forms and processes of governance in European industrial relations. The study provides an analysis of the impact of new governance tools, such as forms of 'soft' regulation and the target-setting, benchmarking and peer review associated with the 'open method of coordination', on the different actors of the European-level industrial relations arena. The report, which was published in April 2007, can be downloaded from the Foundation's website.
