In the current global economy, big companies rule international value chains and worldwide labour forces. Therefore, the representation of employees’ interests faces new challenges. Both Israel and Germany are forerunners in high-tech industries, new economic developments and have a long history of strong workers’ movements. 

The present study program is a cooperation of the Europäische Akademie der Arbeit (EAdA) in the University of Frankfurt am Main, the Macro Center of Political Economics (Macro) in Tel Aviv, Academic Colleague of Tel Aviv Yaffo (MTA) and the Hans-Böckler-Foundation (HBS). It offers a comparative, scientific and interdisciplinary focus on both countries’ industrial relations on the spot, and it qualifies young people for an enhanced work at their local trade union, international employees’ organisations, political parties, public institutions, non-governmental organizations and associations or in the field of workplace co-determination.
