Short course description english flag

The course provides a conceptual and analytical framework for the understanding of the main trends and problems affecting the regulation of labour in a context of intensified economic internationalization. Students will learn how to apply such knowledge to the analysis of recent developments in labour and employment relations in Europe, but attention will be paid also to such countries as the US, Japan and Australia. The first part of the course, taught by Roberto Pedersini, introduces the basic concepts for the analysis of employment relations and subsequently deals with macro-level regulation by the state and tripartite concertation. The second part, taught by Lorenzo Bordogna, addresses the impact of labour market institutions on economic performance, especially in the framework of the EU and with particular attention to the shift from a Keynesian to a monetarist macro-economic regime. It then focuses on the regulation of labour in tertiary and public sector, including the topic of the tertiarization of labour conflicts.
