Panel 12: Social and employment pacts in time of crisis

Thursday 25 September 14:00-15:30

Mobilisation of social actors in the crisis varied from one country to another. In the 1990s countries had tried to negotiate - and some had succeeded in concluding - social pacts. Are these practices still relevant in the crisis? Institutional factors may explain why in some of the countries that concluded social pacts in the 1990s these practices continue. How can we explain the more varied industrial relations outcomes from one country to another since 2007? What is the significance of institutional variables in the patterns observed? What is the weight of economic elements and how important are the strategies of different actors? The fact that social dialogue has today entered a difficult phase may be attributable to a range of different factors. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss these factors.
