Call for papers CIES-ISCTE/IUL Conference Lisbon Portugal September 2012

CIES-ISCTE/IUL, Lisbon, Portugal – September 5-7, 2012

 We are pleased to announce that in 2012 the annual Industrial Relations in Europe Conference (IREC) and the mid-term conference of the ESA Research Network “Work, Employment and Industrial Relations” (RN 17) will be jointly organized as back to back and complementary events at ISCTE-IUL in Lisbon, Portugal from September 5-7.

The IREC-ESA/RN 17 2012 joint-conference will consist of various plenary and track sessions focusing on the impacts of crisis and austerity upon the institutions and actors of European industrial relations systems in both the private and public sectors and the methodological issues involved in their study. We are interested in discussing the concrete impact of the crisis upon industrial relations systems in Europe and the comparative and methodological implications of these transformations. We are especially interested in highlighting the differential impacts of austerity upon public sector employment relations as well as the transformations within the private sector and the new links between labor and other social and political movements.
