Abstract [en]

Conventional wisdom among comparative political economists maintains that employer participation in policy-making and policy implementation, fostered by corporatist arrangements, is crucial for successfully expanding active labor market policy (ALMP). This essay presents a theory that challenges the dominant view by arguing that corporatist arrangements do not affect the overall scope of ALMP but instead facilitate a particular type of ALMP programs; namely, those whose production requires joint participation by employers and the state, and that involves a transfer of public resources to employers. By facilitating such programs—which center-right parties tend to prefer over programs produced unilaterally by the state—the presence of corporatist arrangements also shift the focus of partisan conflict over ALMP, from the level to the structure of public expenditure. Evidence for these claims is provided from a set of time-series–cross-sectional analyses of 21 OECD countries since the mid-1980s.
