We do research on labour regulations, collective organisation, and individual behaviour in working life – analysing the conditions for change, as well as their results. How is the distribution of power, participation, employment, income, and working conditions among social groups being altered? What are the relations between such changes and the demands for renewal or reform of of organisational structures and regulations?
