The Challenge to Industrial Relations in Germany


  • Panagiotopoulos, Miltiadis


The academic literature is inconsistent about the evolvement of the German industrial relations network and varies between theories which emphasize its versatility or forecast its probable deterioration. I suggest that a less centralized version of industrial democracy, with works councilors supporting trade unionists, provides for an alternative against the liberal market economies, and will be a main ingredient in the process of European integration.
