 Protection, Production, and Partnership Institutions: From Institutional Affinities to Complementarities

Show Summary Details


Three major regime typologies are compared: welfare regimes, production systems (or ‘varieties of capitalism’), and labor relations between employers and trade unions. These ideal type classifications are compared with empirical indicators for eight European countries, Japan, and the USA. The institutional affinities between protection, production, and partnership institutions, and the consequences they have are considered.

Keywords: welfare regimes; production systems; industrial relations; social partnership; employment regimes; institutional affinities; macro-configurations
