The Transformation of ARBED 1973-2001. A European business and labour history (TransARB)
1 August 2022 to 31 July 2026
TransARB aims to investigate the transnational transformation of the European steel industry during the last decades of the 20th century within the scope of the Luxembourgish ARBED company. It compares ARBED steel plants in Luxembourg and in Unterwellenborn in Thuringia in the former GDR and analyses both the changes in management strategies and in everyday practices and experiences of workers during both Western European and former Eastern Bloc deindustrialisation.
