“New Trends and Challenges in Nordic Industrial Relations”: Workshop at the MPIfG

April 27, 2023

A one-day workshop on Nordic industrial relations was hosted at the MPIfG in March. Organized by MPIfG research group leader Martin Höpner and IMPRS-SPCE doctoral student Maximilian Kiecker and attended by researchers from Sweden, Denmark, and Finland, the event aimed to update understanding of the state of Nordic industrial relations and to compare national adaptation strategies to common challenges. A key issue were the challenges posed by EU integration and the dilemma Nordic industrial relations systems face as a result. The workshop sought to shed light on the evolving heterogeneity of EU member states and the implications for further integration in the labor market field, and delivered important insights into institutional change and the role of cross-class alliances in the Nordic countries.
