Employment Research and State Traditions

This chapter reviews the institutional development of employment research in the US, Britain, and Germany. It discusses symptoms of the current academic crisis in the study of work and employment and the written attempts to explain these developments. Most studies discuss the status of employment research in a single country (the US) and essentially describe but not further analyse indicators of the crisis and problems of the field. This book contributes to the evolving debate by enlarging the comparative perspective towards non-Anglophone countries such as those of continental Europe. More importantly, rather than focusing on the symptoms of this crisis, the book's historical approach allows us to go a step further and to examine the underlying path dependencies of research patterns across various countries.

Keywords:   Employment Relations, historical approach, research patterns, path dependency, comparative
