This chapter concludes the exploration of the nature of change and development in Eastern European and Russian labour relations. It combines an assessment of the processes of transference, imitation, and imposition which have accompanied the transformation of labour relations in the countries under consideration with an evaluation of the strategies of the principal agents. The impact of legacies from the previous regimes is examined at the levels of power, authority, institutions, behaviour and beliefs. The discussion is drawn together by assessing, in the light of these considerations, the extent of institutionalization of new labour relations models and whether the countries have begun to move in the directions of Western-style labour relations.

Keywords:   labour relations, transference, imitation, imposition, labour relations models, institutionalization
