August 2015 Theme 1

Theme 1 - Management & Employees

On behalf of Theme1, Sara Lafuente (ESR1) has presented a joint paper paper at the CRIMT conference in Montreal, Canada in May. The paper, co-authored by Mona Aranea (ESR 2)and Dragos Adascalitei (ESR3), deals with the decentralization of collective bargaining in the course of the crisis since 2008 and undertakes a comparative analysis of corresponding trade union strategies in Rumania and Spain. Sara has also presented the joint paper to the Changing Employment Session at the 17th World Economy Meeting that took place in Gijón, Spain in June.

Significant progress has been made in terms of dissemination in Theme 1 as a concrete book proposal has been handed in with Springer in June 2015. Contributions include chapters by Theme 1 fellows and authors from Marie Curie associate partners such as the ETUI or the ILO. Valeria Pulignano of KU Leuven has organized a very fruitful meeting between potential authors in Belgium in May, providing Theme 1 ESRs with feedback on their draft chapters. She will edit the book together with Holm Koehler (UniOvi) and Paul Stewart (Strathclyde University).
