For three decades social dialogue has been a key element in the European social market economy and contributed to its competitiveness, but it is now challenged by industrial and social change. Collective bargaining de-centralisation has polarised EU Member States and the subsequent crisis has resulted in an increased trend towards unilateral decision making by governments at the expense of social partners’ autonomy.

Massey University Distinguished Visitor Professor Dr Christian Welz will look at the current state of play of social dialogue in Europe, focusing on his organisation’s extensive research findings and attempting to anticipate, in as far as possible, the impacts BREXIT may have.

Professor Dr Christian Welz is a Senior Research Manager at the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) and brings extensive experience and knowledge from the fields of industrial relations (IR), EU labour law, and social policy. Professor Welz’s research work at Eurofound, the EU Agency for the improvement of living and working, supports the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy to ensure that Europe achieves smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
