This chapter introduces the employment relations and migration contexts for each of our countries and outlines the research methodology. We locate the discussion in the period since the 1970s, with a particular focus on the late 1990s through to the early 2010s. To this extent we traverse a period of increasing - and changing - immigration patterns, as well as the emergence of a significant crisis within the context of capitalism and new forms of xenophobia. The research conducted by the authors was financed mainly by the Leverhulme Trust (2008-12) and in part by the Economic and Social Research Council (both British-based national funding bodies).

Keywords:   Trade Unions, Immigration, Labour Relations, Methodology, Comparative Industrial Relations, Netherlands, Spain, United Kingdom
