By Carsten Stroby Jensen

This book provides a comprehensive presentation of trends in Danish industrial relations, with focus on trade unions, employer's federations, and the interrelationships between employees and employers, as well as current trends in collective bargaining in both the private and public sector. The book includes a comprehensive explanation and discussion of different theoretical positions within the industrial relations field, including theories of collective action, Human Resource Management, critical theory, traditional systems theory, and theories of strategic choice. Certain chapters also contextualize trends in relation to themes such as globalization and Europeanization.
