A State within a State: Industrial Relations in Israel, 1965-1987


According to Chermesh, the Israeli industrial relations system has developed as a state within a state, having, by the mid-1980s, gained a high level of autonomy and detachment from political and economic constraints. By tracing the evolution of the system from the mid-1960s, Chermesh demonstrates the limits of economic and legal perspectives as analytical tools in the field of collective industrial relations. Instead, he stresses the importance of the institutional setting for planning and implementing sound industrial relations policy.
