This study critically evaluates industrial relations (IR) in South-Eastern Europe and points towards future practical and research-oriented opportunities in the region. A survey of organizational policies and practices has been used to explore the state of IR in both private and public organizations in this region. Specifically, the data, collected in 2009-2010 (including the latest changes due to the economic crisis), cover 840 different organizations located in Slovenia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece and Cyprus. We discuss the development of 'regional-specific' IR policies, the 'importing' of varieties of capitalism models, the diffusion of the European Union social model and the role of foreign MNCs in changing IR in the region. © 2014 © 2013 Taylor & Francis.
