Uitgebreide vaknaam Conflict Management & Industrial Relations
Leerdoelen To provide insight into the topic of conflict and conflict management in different national industrial settings. The conflict management aspect will focus on industrial relations, i.e. relations between employers and unions in different countries.
Omschrijving As reflected in the notion of 'stakeholders', a large number of different groups with (more or less) different interests are present within a firm and the economy as a whole: there is ample room for conflicts. At present, much attention is paid to the relation between shareholders and management under the heading of 'corporate governance'. In this course, we will focus upon the relation between workers and employers and their interests, specifically, the kind of conflicts that exist between them and the conflict resolution mechanisms that have been developed. Given this age of the unification of the countries of the European Union and globalisation, a comparative perspective (comparison of countries) will be used; these kinds of institutions tend to be very country-specific.
