SECOND SPECIAL ISSUE
REVISTA DE ECONOMÍA LABORAL.
In the new stage ofRevista de Economía Laboral (REL), the journal devotes a volume annually to a special issue. After the first one devoted to the economic analysis of labour market reforms passed during the financial crisis, the content of the new one, chosen by the Chair of Directors of the AEET and the Editorial Board of REL, focuses on the analysis of the systems of collective bargaining and their impact on wages and employment, with the aim of focusing on the reforms passed in 2011 and 2012 and the perspectives for the future, always paying attention to the economic analysis.
Therefore, REL invites contributions to this special issueto be published in December 2016 which would consist of about five analytic articles focusing, from diverging perspectives and points of view, on the study of the chosen topic. The number of articles will depend on the response of authors to this call for papers. These articles might be accompanied by short notes of descriptive nature on some of the themes that the special issue is bound to examine. Furthermore, it would also be possible to include one or two reviews on recent published books regarding collective bargaining.
The articles should have an economic approach and focus on the analysis of the main contents of collective bargaining, the Spanish model as compared with other, European models, the objectives and economic consequences of the reforms, the importance of wage-setting institutions concerning the coverage of firms and works, the structure of bargaining regarding the degree of centralization and coordination, and their impact on aggregate labour market performance indicators such as wages, working time and employment.
As a mere illustration, a list of potential topics to be treated in the special issue is provided below. Authors may refer to these topics when presenting their proposal of articles.
SPECIAL ISSUE: Collective bargaining, wages and employment. Reforms and prospects.
ü Models of wage-setting institutions in the OECD and, in particular, EU countries.
ü The Spanish model of collective bargaining and its comparison to others.
ü The importance of labour market reforms in 2011 and 2012 and their impact on the key characteristics of the Spanish system of collective bargaining. Has the model changed with these reforms?
