Abstract

[Extract] As a taught course, international and/or comparative employment relations has become increasingly included in management, industrial relations and human resource management graduate and undergraduate programs over the past decade. In Australia, a public policy orientation towards Asia contributed to this development. Employment relations, as used in these programs, is usually a composite of the disciplines of industrial relations and the objective (rather than prescriptive) phenomena of human resource management. The composite, although variously used in the past has, to some extent, been legitimised by recent publications in the comparative field.
