Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on the shift from old governance to new governance in the workplace. It traces the history of the rise and fall of old governance, and examines the role that the participatory mechanisms which developed under old governance play in the new one. The article argues that the institutions of employee participation which were central to twentieth-century labour relations regimes will also play crucial roles in the development of new governance strategies for workplace regulation. It furthermore discusses the rise of regulated self-regulation in the workplace and the forms of participation in workplace governance.

Keywords: governance, workplace regulation, participatory mechanisms, employee participation, labour relations, self-regulation, workplace governance
