Industrial Relations in Denmark provides a comprehensive presentation of trends in Danish industrial relations with focus on trade unions, employer's federations and the interrelationships between employees and employers, as well as current trends in collective bargaining in both the private and public sector. The book includes a comprehensive explanation and discussion of different theoretical positions within the industrial relations field, including theories of collective action, Human Resource Management, critical theory, traditional systems theory and theories of strategic choice. Certain chapters also contextualise trends in relation to themes such as globalisation and europeanisation. In addition, comparative perspectives present developments in Danmark in relation to other countries.
