This new, ‘open’ issue of Transfer presents seven articles. The first two focus on the social and economic policies implemented in response to the 2008 financial crisis. The following three articles deal with the emergence of new players in the field of social relations and the implications this has for industrial relations systems. The sixth article analyses the way in which habitus in social relations at national level interfere with attempts to establish a transnational social dialogue. Lastly, the final article analyses the impact on well-being, job satisfaction and stress of management strategies centred on heavy employee involvement.
