This issue of Transfer publishes six original articles which cover key issues for industrial relations in Europe: the impact of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) on industrial relations systems; the changing political context under economic crisis and austerity measures, with its impacts on workers’ voice and representation; the state of the European sectoral social dialogue; the role played by European Works Councils (EWCs) at national level; economic integration and union strategies in the EU; and trade unions and non-standard work. The contributions in this issue provide several new perspectives and insights, which can contribute to enrich the ongoing debates.
