Abstract

Cross-national research focused on corporative patterns of state-labor relations can be guided by the questions 'who does what, to whom, and how?' With reference to who, the actors launching corporative arrangements must be carefully identified. Regarding what and to whom, attention must focus on the specific institutional and policy initiatives undertaken and the sectors and/or organizations at which they are targeted. Concerning how, the specific mechanisms and procedures entailed in these institutions and policies must be explored. Answers to these questions point to two varieties of corporatism - identified with populist versus authoritarian regimes.
