Abstract

This paper, delivered at the 50th anniversary conference of the Canadian Industrial Relations Association (CIRA), explores the relationship between academic research and public policy in the field of industrial relations and more broadly. Following an analysis of the current state of industrial relations, it makes the case for the re-invention of the discipline as “the study of economic power and resistance”.

Keywords: Industrial relations, labour law, unequal power relations

JEL Classification: J50, J53, K31
