„Limits of corporatist explanations: Labour market reforms in Germany and the Netherlands revisited”


In political science an analysis of the integration of actors from civil society in political processes normally rests on corporatism. Corporatist theory assumes that a corporatist structure of the interest representation system is a necessary condition of successful concertation. But in the case of labour market reforms in Germany as well as in the Netherlands other trends could be observed: While in regard to German labour market reforms many cases of corporatism without concertation could be identified, in regard to Dutch labour market reforms many cases of concertation without corporatism appear. Thus, a political science explanation of these phenomena has to be found.
