Frege, Carola M. (2002) A critical assessment of the theoretical and empirical research on German works councils. British journal of industrial relations, 40 (2). pp. 221-248. ISSN 0007-1080
The article reviews the existing English- and German-speaking literature on the German works council. Three major research topics are discussed: the ontology and typologies of works councils; their current practice and transformation; and their economic outcomes. Although much research has been conducted on the internal functioning of the works council–management relationship, it is clear that we still know little about the determinants of different workplace relations and their outcomes. The article concludes by advocating a reviving research interest in the link between codetermination and political democracy.
