Labour Constitutions During the First World War
Because an essential resource of the war-economy was at risk, the normative order focused on labour proved to be a cardinal problem in all of the countries involved the world war. The national systems of industrial relations, especially from a normative point of view, were just entering into a phase of institutionalising. The conference observes how these fragile structures behaved in the war-context. In doing so, it also questions the historical prerequisites that were essential for the work- and socio-political institutional framework during the interwar period.
