This paper addresses the convergence/divergence debate in personnel management in Europe by drawing on an international, longitudinal, database of information on human relogicalTitle management. In particular, the paper explores the issue of a convergence towards concepts of HRM that have come to Europe from the USA. It finds that while there appears to be some degree of convergence taking place, much is unchanged, and the explanatory power of the national institutional contexts remains strong.
