Professor Richard Hyman

Emeritus Professor of Industrial Relations


Professor Hyman has been one of the most prominent figures in British and European employment relations research for most of the past four decades. He has written extensively on the themes of comparative industrial relations, collective bargaining, trade unionism, industrial conflict and labour market policy. His books have encouraged generations of students, researchers, and activists to view the employment relationship in its wider social and political context.

Professor Hyman received his BA and DPhil from Oxford University. He joined LSE in 2000 having previously held a Chair in Industrial Relations at the University of Warwick. He is founding editor of the European Journal of Industrial Relations and has served on the editorial board of numerous journals throughout his academic career.

In May 2009, to commemorate Professor Hyman's long and distinguished career, the British Journal of Industrial Relations (BJIR) held a conference in his honour.
