A knowledge of labour law and trade-union law is suggested
The course covers the basic principles of the Italian industrial relations system
The course in divided in four parts. In the first, there will be analyzed the theories of industrial relations and the method of analysis of their institutional and legal framework. The second will concern a comparative analysis of different legal systems. In particular, there will be taken into account the new challenges of industrial relations both in Europe – with analyses of national situations and European comparison – and in respect of new works, such as atypical works. In the third part we will make a detail reconstruction of models, structures and techniques of collective bargaining in use, with special attention to the relationship between trade unions. In the last part, will be deepened some profiles of the Italian system of industrial relations, highlighting critical issues and development perspectives.
