The ILERA Publication Series was established in 2014 on the general theme of comparative labour and employment relations. This first volume will be co-published end-2017 by ILERA, the International Labour Office and Edward Elgar Publishing. Books in this series will focus on comparative analysis of "labour and employment relations". This term is to be interpreted broadly and comprises all aspects of work including labour policy, labour market analysis, labour relations and collective bargaining, human resource management, and work- and workplace - related topics. The second volume in the series, Organizing members in “Hybrid Systems”: Acomparative study by Guy Mundlak, is expected to be published in 2019.
