By examining the evolution of industrial relations
institutions in the emerging economies of Brazil, China,
India, South Africa and Turkey, the authors in this book
assess the contribution of these institutions to
inclusive development. It uses real-world examples to
assess the relevance of the conceptual frameworks used to
examine employment relations. The chapters focus on the
evolution of industrial relations institutions and the
role that these have played in periods of economic and
political transition. They demonstrate that rather than
acting as a constraint on development, trade unions can
contribute to stability, security and equity.
