In this paper it is argued that at this very moment students of industrial relations have three options. The first is to cling to the role of neutral observers as the object of our study is submerged under the waves of globalisation. The second is to seek a comfortable niche as servants of power. The third, and doubtless most difficult, is to offer our skills in research and analysis in a partnership with those social actors struggling to sustain a civilised regulatory regime in the labour market, to pursue shared understandings and to help shape strategic initiatives.
