The International Institute for Labour Studies: Appraisal and Forward Look.
Cox, Robert W.
An appraisal is made of work accomplished by the International Institute for Labour Studies during the period 1965-1970, and guidelines for future development are suggested. Educational work accomplished by the institute since 1965 followed the general purpose of providing leadership education for those in labor and social policy fields. Related to this are identification of the target group, approaches and methods, the need for financing to provide materials and teaching fellowship, and the institutes internship courses. Institute research has concentrated on the general area of social relations and social organization. The research has included symposia on migration, wages, and inflation; a comparative study of workers' participation in management; a research project on strategic factors in industrial relations; research in the field of social participation in transitional societies; and the establishment of International Industrial Relations Associations. In addition to books, the institute also publishes the ILLS Bulletin. Future directions of the institute in education and research work concern future trends in industrial relations, in social policy, transnational labor relations, social participation and organization building in transitional societies, and the promotion of labor studies.
