The greater emphasis on governance issues in economic reform programmes of Middle East and North African (MENA) countries has given inadequate attention to labour governance. This paper draws on the experience of Nordic countries to review the role of labour governance institutions, tripartism, and collective bargaining in the MENA region. The issues it addresses include labour flexibility, social protection, public sector employment, and minimum wages. This comparative overview identifies directions for future research on multiple dimensions of the link between labour governance and economic reform.
