This chapter provides the number of approaches in order to set the scene for examining the Community and Voluntary Pillar (CVP). It discusses both historical and comparative perspectives. The chapter explores the variety of sceptical perspectives on the Irish model of social partnership. It also explores neo-corporatist literature approach in more detail, in historical and comparative perspective. The chapter examines the Irish experience from 1987 as a variant of the 'new social pacts' to emerge internationally since the 1980s. It describes the differing interpretations of the significance of the innovation of the CVP. Bill Roche developed his analysis to deal with the emergence of the CVP and a wider policy agenda in social partnership in the 1990s. He identified the concatenation of four key elements: centralised wage bargaining; networking subsystems; regulatory and trouble-shooting mechanisms; and social buffering.
