Welcome to the Industrial Relations and Human Resources Group

Welcome to the website of the Industrial Relations and Human Resources Group in the UCD Schools of Business. The Group is involved in the provision of teaching, research and commentary on the changing world of work in Ireland and internationally. Drawn from diverse academic backgrounds and a number of countries, members of the Industrial Relations and Human Resources Group are among the leading Irish and European scholars in the field. They share a commitment to independent, critical and evidence-based teaching and scholarship and their teaching and research takes account of the interests of all the main stakeholders in the world of work: employers, employees, trade unions and the wider community. The Group is proud of a heritage that stretches back many decades in UCD and values engagement with stakeholders and their concerns as a central feature of that heritage. On the international stage, the disciplines of human resource management and industrial relations in the School of Business and their students are networked through the Group’s association with the ILR School at Cornell University, New York and through the European Master’s in Labour Studies Programme network of leading European universities that include Milan, Louvain-La-Neuve, the London School of Economics, Warwick Business School and a range of leading institutions.

I hope that the pages on this site provide you with a useful outline of our teaching, research and related activities, and invite you to make contact with members of the Group if you require further information.
