1st International Industrial Relations Association (IIRA) World Congress on Labour market regulations: rationales, indicators and impacts

The Study Group's first meeting was organized in two panels. In the first, the existing theoretical and conceptual frameworks for the measurement and comparison of labour regulations were evaluated and suggestions made for improvements in theory, measurement and evaluation. The second panel was devoted to "country reports" on empirical studies in various national settings. Presentations were made by Miguel Malo (University of Salamanca); Sean Cooney (University of Melbourne) and Richard Mitchell (Monash University); Judy Fudge (University of Victoria); Sara Charlesworth (RMIT University); and Sangheon Lee (International Labour Organization) and Deirdre McCann (University of Aberdeen).
