Power, trust and deliberation in Swedish labour-market politics
Uppsala University, Humanistisk-samhällsvetenskapliga vetenskapsområdet, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Government.
2002 (English)In: Economic and Industrial Democracy, ISSN 0143-831X, E-ISSN 1461-7099, Vol. 23, no 4, 451-490 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The article focuses on labour market relations:

  • To what extent do main actors share key opinions?
  • Which actors are considered influential?
  • Who is trusted by whom, and how much?
  • Does communication take the character of deliberation?

Since relational data in Industrial Relations is rare, 71 actors in Sweden were asked about each other (770 elite positions, slightly more that 300 answered). Asserted changes seem over-estimated. The state still hold key positions. Peak-organisations and the Social Democratic Party are also influential, but less so. Powerful actors are less trusted over class borders, but the Labour Court and the Conciliators' Office are considered trustworthy, rational 'deliberators'. It is hypothesised that they produce "the cement of society" that holds the system together.
