Conference and Special Issue: European Works Councils at Twenty: Assessing their Work, Impact and Prospects
Employment Research Unit Conference - 29-30 October 2015, Cardiff Business School, Cardiff, UK

Cardiff Business School's Employment Research Unit will host a conference later this year assessing the impact and value of the European Works Councils in their 20th year. Based on the conference topic, the European Journal of Industrial Relations will publish a special issue.

The European Commission adopted the European Works Councils (EWCs) Directive in 1994, establishing, for the first time, a transnational right to employee participation. The Directive, under article 13, provided the opportunity to voluntarily negotiate an EWC by 1996, or otherwise be bound by the norms set out in the Directive. Since then over 1000 EWCs have been established in multinational companies operating in Europe. The conference and special issue takes the 20th anniversary of EWCs as an opportunity to evaluate the working, impact and future prospects of EWCs and EWC research.

Please find the conference and special issue call for paper here:
