In contrast to many European Industrial Relations Systems the one in Turkey is growing in size and importance as the Turkish Economy emerges into a fully developed one. Indeed the growth patterns there have been thrown into focus, not only by Turkey's position in the recent Gulf War, but also by her application to join the EEC, made in 1989 but deferred until 1995. This paper seeks to examine the emergent Turkish Industrial Relations system not only in the light of these growth patterns but also with regard to how far the Turkish Industrial Relations system matches a broad European pattern, both in practice and in legal regulation from the EEC itself.
