This volume contains the proceedings of a conference held to assess the current state of the analysis of the labour market and of industrial relations and their relationship to economic performance. The matters covered include the value of the corporatist approach versus alternatives, for example, a sort of sector corporatism or a corporatist approach at the level of the firm; the future scenarios for industrial relations with a series of county studies with special reference to incomes policies and the departures from various neocorporatist models; the importance of institutions and public structures in industrial relations; labour market flexibility and unemployment.
