Liberalization by Exhaustion: Transformative Change in the German Welfare State and Vocational Training System

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In this paper, we adopt a power distributional approach in analyzing transformative institutional change in the German welfare and vocational training system. We demonstrate that the very nature of the current changes in these two core institutions of the German Model is a process of liberalization due to the exhaustion of traditional institutions. Exhaustion describes a mechanism of institutional change, whose direction is largely determined by endogenous developments and whose timing is related to exogenous factors. Thus, endogenous negative feedback effects caused by the overextension of resources lead to a transformation of the formerly symmetrical and consensual relationship between the state, employers and unions into an asymmetrical and conflictual one. Exogenous sources such as German unification play a role as catalyst and explain the timing of transformation. The article contributes to the analysis of institutional change and applies the method of process tracing. It also provides detailed case studies of the transformation of the German welfare state and vocational training system over the course of the last three decades.
