The Institute of Economic and Social Research (WSI) invites you to its 2012 Summer School in Berlin under the title: Industrial Relations and Crisis Management in Germany: a Model for Europe?

There is a current debate on why the German economy did comparatively well during the 'Great Recession' from 2008 - 2010 and how this performance is related to the German model of industrial relations and its cooperative features. The WSI Summer School 2012 would like to engage in this debate. It will explore the German crisis management against the changing contours of German industrial relations, analyse causes, consequences and side effects of "Germany's job miracle" and question whether it can serve as a model for Europe.

Participants of the summer school are invited to take part in this debate and will be offered the opportunity to present and discuss their own research projects. The WSI Summer School addresses young researchers, students and doctorate students from all social sciences (Economics, Law, Sociology, Political Science etc.).

The Summer School will be coordinated and conducted by a team of senior researchers of the Institute of Economic and Social Research (WSI) including Martin Behrens, Reinhard Bispinck, Heiner Dribbusch and Thorsten Schulten.

Fees: 50 Euro
Closing Date: 27.04.2012
