The British Universities Industrial Relations Association (BUIRA) was founded in 1950.
Initially entitled the Inter-University Study Group in Industrial Relations, the name of BUIRA has been adopted since 1967. During its early years the association served mainly as a network for the exchange of ideas at an annual meeting. BUIRA still hosts its annual conference, but the association also supports a wider set of activities, including a vibrant doctoral network, a series of thematic study groups and occasional publications.
