    Cross-border social dialogue and agreements: An emerging global industrial relations framework?

    12 May 2008

    The book examines various facets of international framework agreements (IFAs), as one of numerous private initiatives that have emerged in the absence of a state-driven multilateral framework, in view of organising a common labour relations framework at cross-border level.
