The Essence of Social Dialogue contains the proceedings of the first seminar held by the European Platform on Social Dialogue (EPOS).
EPOS is a joint venture between various Western European universities belonging to the European Working Group on Labour Law, the Belgian Federal Public Service Labour and Social Dialogue, and several universities and labour ministry officials from Eastern Europe and Turkey. The International Labour Organisation's Sub-Regional Office in Budapest was also involved in the realisation of the network's first activities.
EPOS seeks to observe the evolution of regulations on social dialogue within the network. In addition to providing a comprehensive overview of the various national legal systems, the book contains a comparative study on “collective bargaining at enterprise level”.
This book and initiative would not have been possible without the expertise and the financial and administrative support of the Belgian Ministry and EWL. The EWL is deeply indebted to the Flemish Fund for Scientific Research for its generous assistance.
There are no separate chapters available for this publication.
