In 2008–10 the first agreements signed by companies based in the United Kingdom, in Asia (Indonesia, Japan and Malaysia) and in Latin America (Brazil) emerged – countries where until then no IFA had been reached. The recent geographical expansion seems to suggest a departure from an IFA logic as reflecting exclusively the European approach to industrial relations. The rationale and overview of this volume This volume presents evidence regarding the observed impact of selected IFAs as well as their effectiveness on the ground, with particular focus on their social dialogue and positive industrial relations effects across the global value chains of multinationals: what are the observed impacts of IFAs in terms of improved possibilities for social dialogue across the value chain of companies?

Developing appropriate action for supporting actors and institutions of cross-border social dialogue and agreements. The role of international public institutions in supporting MNEs and GUFs in implementing and monitoring IFAs may be crucial. Historically, the voluntary creation of labour–management agreements on, for example, collective bargaining at the national level has been followed by state-driven regulatory action enabling actors to formalize and sustain their relationship. The multiplication of cross-border company initiatives has already triggered initiatives of regulatory action at the European Union level.
