Eva Hartmann and Poul F. Kjaer (eds.): The Evolution of Intermediary Institutions in Europe
The Evolution of Intermediary Institutions in Europe: From Corporatism to Governance
This anthology investigates the consecutive shifts between three types of intermediary institutions in the European context: Corporatist, Neo-corporatist and Governance institutions. It develops a new conceptual framework for understanding the function and position of intermediary institutions in society, as well as a vocabulary capable of explaining the causes and consequences of these shifts for politics, economy and society at large. The book is designed to fill a gap in three rather distinct, yet also overlapping bodies of literature: European Political Economy, European Integration and governance studies, and socio-legal studies in the European context. Among the contributors are: Professor Alfons Bora (Bielefeld University), Germany; Assistant Professor Eva Hartmann, Associate Professor Hubert Buch-Hansen & Professor Poul F. Kjaer Copenhagen Business School, Denmark; Distinguished Professor Bob Jessop, Lancaster University, UK; Professor Chris Thornhill, University of Manchester, UK a.o.
