Towards convergence in Europe: Institutions, labour and industrial relations

This book provides a unique and timely analysis of the socio-economic indicators influencing convergence trends in the EU.

Case studies help to identify the possible impacts of global movements (migration, foreign investment) and policies (social protection, social dialogue, employment) on cross-country convergence.

The volume presents examples of where institutions and industrial relations can change convergence outcomes and proposes a range of useful policy options. Scholars and researchers will find it an invaluable reference for studies of European affairs and social policies.
