1992; Boswell 2004). In a similar vein to Freeman’s ‘pluralist’ analysis, corporatist approaches have been developed to understand the guest-worker phenomenon in Europe (Hammar 1984) – that is, the role of unions and employers’ associations in regulating entry policies – and neo-corporatism has been seen as one way of understanding policy-making on migration as a means of conflict management between these interests (Lahav 1998). Overall, there is a weakness in the pluralist and corporatist approaches in that they tend to construct a causal linkage between changes in

argues that state power in Japan hinges on its capacity to work effectively with the private sector…. Bureaucratic power is … relational in the sense that it emerged from the structure of LDP–bureaucracy–interest group alignments and political exchanges that take place among them. (Okimoto, 1989: 314) The EA lacks both political and social relationships. The constraint on environmental policy is described by Broadbent (1996) as ‘communitarian elite corporatism’. Environmental policy, especially in the early 1970s, was dominated by the traditional ruling triad (big

‘conjuncture’ mean that these ideas have proved particularly attractive to a left that is struggling to redefine its project after the collapse of state socialism and the declining appeal of a top-down, bureaucratic corporatism and welfarism, and to respond to widespread concerns about the deteriorating social fabric and ‘hollowed-out’ politics of the contemporary market societies that neo-liberalism is creating. Republican ideas seem to promise a route back to the values of freedom and democracy that the twentieth-century left seemed too often to lose touch with, at the

mixture of nationalism, corporatism, conservatism, Catholicism and traditionalism, the New State regime nonetheless propagated the ideal of a ‘New Man’,2 which it described in language in which virtues and vices featured quite prominently. In this chapter I argue that scholarly personae offer a helpful lens for understanding the professionalization of history in Portugal. I define a scholarly persona as a constellation of commitments to goods, embodied through the cultivation of virtues and the honing of skills and practices, which together characterize the way in which

. Following the introduction of the euro, the extent to which unions were able to respond to pressures associated with Europeanization was nonetheless minor. In contrast to many European countries, there were no tripartite agreements which attempted to establish competitiveness; this was a result of low rates of union density. The contestative dispositions of French unions, particularly the radical CGT and FO, were also scarcely conducive to such pacts. In that such factors had frustrated the historic emergence of corporatism in France (Crouch, 1993 ), these developments

Both groups, however, Brack added, had been ‘aware of the dangers of the growth in the size of the state, including the increased power of bureaucracies, and the infringement on civil liberties that may entail, the tendency of elites to capture elements of state power, the growth of corporatism, a rising burden of taxation and so on’. To counteract such dangers, economic liberals had ‘generally concluded that this should lead to an attempt to reduce the size of the state’, whereas social liberals had ‘tended rather to argue that the state should be constrained (for

, attached central importance to the adoption of ‘corporatist’ and regulatory policies in relation to incomes, the social wage and, albeit in an increasingly qualified manner, workplace relations. As we will see below, Hawke’s and Keating’s agreement with the ACTU , in the form of the Accord, and their unqualified opposition to ‘market fundamentalism’ or ‘Thatcherism’, were crucial factors in the successful realisation of their goals. In contrast, Blair and Brown eschewed the 1970s ‘corporatism’ of the Social

the CWC and its role in social partnership thus also serves to highlight the unusual local dimension in the hybrid of corporatism and other types of local partnership entities implicated in the Irish model, which have been a source of confusion in accounts of Irish social partnership, particularly in a comparative perspective. The experience of the Co-­op within social partnership also brings out important issues in relation to the distribution of power. A brief chronology is provided in Table 7.1. This chapter starts by examining the origins and outlook of the CWC
