Short description

The project studies European sectoral social dialogue in the metal and hospital sectors. The project is funded by the European Commission (DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion). PI: Dr. Barbara Bechter, Durham University. The project aims to identify what factors that determine the effectiveness of the 43 sectoral social dialogues between employer organizations and trade unions in the EU-28, and, through an in-depth study of the health care and metal sectors, to understand what creates engagement and obstacles in the dialogues.
