Rubery and Grimshaw (2003) distinguish three perspectives for the comparative study of employment relations. Introduce these perspectives and discuss how successful each of these perspectives is in explaining (1) international differences in employment relations and (2) the changes in employment relations within countries. (3) Discuss the changes associated with globalization and critically evaluate how and to what extent globalization has affected international differences in employment practices. Give examples.
