Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis of the Signatures of Agreements
Our approach relied on two types of study. At fi rst we analysed the observable trends in the working of proxy representation in relation to the 35 hours; we explored our own database of 1,232 agreements consisting of an equal number of agreements of Aubry 1 and 2. By focusing on the players in the negotiations we classifi ed and produced correlation tables, describing the relationships between the terms of the different variables. This type of analysis allowed us to establish a profi le for each question and to discuss links with other variables.
