The national basis of economic regulation was weakened and the legitimacy of major components of the mode of regulation, like, undermined. Through our imprint ECPR Press and via the OUP Comparative Politics book series, we publish research by, and for the political science community. This illuminating book considers the roles of social partners in regulating work and welfare through corporatist arrangements in three countries – all of which have strong traditions for social partner involvement. Businesses that adopt a social justice agenda risk being perceived as incompetent – since they cannot live up to lofty goals that often require political collective action – and often face accusations of being cynical and hypocritical.

AB – Slovenia stands out as the only post-communist country to have established acorporatist system and centralized wage bargaining at the national level in the1990s. This article analyses the emergence and sustainability of Sloveniancorporatism as well as the ways in which it has shaped policymaking during theeconomic crisis. Drawing on recent advances in institutional analysis, this articledevelops a coalitional argument to account for the emergence of centralizedwage bargaining in the 1990s and for decentralization in more recent years.

Our Standing Groups organise a range of annual events, including summer schools, conferences and workshops, open to all. A comprehensive programme of cutting-edge qualitative and quantitative methodological training delivered by experts across two annual events. There have been some remarkable displays of Putin apologism in recent weeks but its assertion on social media that the US president was “fanning the flames of war” is right up there with the very worst. The tweet has still not been taken down, despite a fairly stern public rebuke from Unilever chief Alan Jope. Western sanctions against Russia have become a fascinating study in how quickly a G20 economy can be brought to the brink of collapse. The extent to which the state was effective during the crisis—such as in providing financial support to keep businesses afloat or in procuring and partly funding vaccines—does not necessarily set a model for how the state should act during a non-emergency.

It argues that the failures of both these regimes were avoidable, and the outcome of ‘political’ rather than economic variables. It concludes by calling for economic policies that take more account of their political implications, and of the need to strengthen state capacity in weak states. ‘Using historical institutional analysis of corporatism to understand the professionalization of accounting in Latin America.’, Accounting, Organizations and Society .

The “Golden Age”, from the late 1940s to early 1970s, was based on a regime of accumulation and accompanying mode of regulation, commonly known as Fordism. At the heart of the mode of regulation in most European economies was the concept of corporatism, whereby economic and social interests were incorporated into some policy arena with the state. The stability conditions of Fordism, as a regime of accumulation, began to break down in the late 1960s.

The paper addresses both micro and macroeconomic themes, including international experiences of labour market reform, employment and social policies, insider-outsider and institutionally determined unemployment, the German system of collective bargaining and the importance of tripartite corporatist agreements. The paper concludes that reform in the German labour market should proceed through rather than against the existing institutions of social partnership, possibly with a new role for government in strengthening incentives for both unions and employers to act in a socially responsible way. In the comparative study of Denmark, the Netherlands and Austria, Mikkel Mailand explores the roles of social partners in regulating work and welfare through corporatist arrangements. This insightful book illustrates how the frequency of tripartite agreements has either been stable or has increased since the Great Recession of 2008, in spite of challenges from trade unions’ loss of power and political developments.

Therefore, the logic of these circumstances leads to the argument that decentralisation is a form of This paper argues that Russia’s choice of economic organisation, which is based on the renewed role of the state, is a response to the existence of severe transaction costs, and subsequent mitigation of contractual incompleteness in the absence of a strong property rights system. Ill-defined property rights have historically hampered formation of business classes in Russia, reducing the necessity for appropriate market infrastructure. This working paper analyses the shift from corporatist to liberal economic policy regimes in Zimbabwe that led to the crisis of the late 1990s. It outlines the rationale for both regimes, the reasons for their introduction and major achievements and failures, and how they contributed to the subsequent adoption of the dysfunctional policies of the late 1990s.
