Belgium -Industrial relations system stays upright -January 14, 2014

Oxford University Press is to publish the studies ‘Changing inequalities & societal impacts in rich countries’ and ‘Changing inequalities in rich countries, analytical and comparative perspectives’. These show that the profound economic crisis had a devastating impact on social systems in many countries, but not on Belgium. The country is strongly linked to the solid German economy, and the social security system and the labour market are well-organised. Reference is made to minimum wages, the health care system and unemployment policies.
