On behalf of the Association of Industrial Relations Academics of Australia and New Zealand (AIRAANZ) and the host, the New Zealand Work and Labour Market Institute, I welcome you to the 25th AIRAANZ Conference in Auckland, 1-4 February 2011. We are confident that participants will experience an intellectually and socially stimulating range of presentations and engagements with colleagues as well as key social partners contributing to the conference. I would especially like to acknowledge the contribution of Professor Tayo Fashoyin, recently retired from the ILO in Geneva and the position of secretary of the International Industrial Relations Association, as well as the Honourable Kate Wilkinson, Minister for Labour, Helen Kelly, president of Council of Trade Unions, Phil O’Reilly, CEO of Business New Zealand.
I wish to acknowledge our sponsors, who are listed prominently on this site. In addition, I thank all members of the organising committee for their assistance.
I look forward to meeting most of you during the conference and to receiving papers for our proceedings.
