dc.description.abstractA significant strand of recent social-scientific writing on Ireland has assigned great importance to various forms of ?collaborative production?: new forms of work organisation, partnership and direct employee involvement ? even suggesting that their growing diffusion might have played a major role in Ireland?s exceptional economic performance during the 1990s. This paper draws on the University College Dublin national workplace survey of employee relations to present an assessment of the degree to which new modes of collaborative production have gained ground in Ireland during the 1990s. While collaborative production is undoubtedly significant in many Irish workplaces, ?exclusionary? forms of decision-making are shown to dominate the postures of establishments towards the handling of change. Arguments pointing to the ?transformation?, actual or imminent, of work practices and employment relations in Ireland are rejected. Change in Ireland is shown to have much in common with developments in other economies, particularly those characterised by ?Anglo-American? institutional systems, which are not readily permeable to collaborative production in its various modes.en
