Social Democracy in Sweden : The Threat from a Globalised World, Hardback Book

Social Democracy in Sweden : The Threat from a Globalised World Hardback

Part of the Library of European Studies series

Description

What is the future of social democracy in the age of globalization?

The Swedish model, long the paradigm for socially responsible capitalism, was pronounced dead in the 1990s, but a new Swedish model has emerged and is thriving.

Europeanisation and globalization were expected to erode social democracy, placing limits on the power of organized labour to negotiate with capital.

Here Dimitris Tsarouhas shows why and how this did not happen.

Tracing the emergence of the original model to its institutional and political origins, he garners rich empirical evidence to show the resilience of the fundamental nature of Swedish social democracy in the face of changing policies, institutions and labour relations. "Social Democracy in Sweden" is an important reassessment of European social democracy and the impact of globalization.
