Organized Interests and the European Community / Edition 1

Organized Interests and the European Community studies the relationship between organized business and industrial interests and the internationalization of markets. A very topical expression of the internationalization of markets is the drive to create a single European market in the 1990s. As this study demonstrates, organized interests are playing a vital role in the process.

At the heart of understanding this process lies a recognition of two factors. Firstly, that interest associations are but one amongst a vast set of mechanisms of governance. Secondly, that interest associatons are themselves diverse in levels, domains, territories and the size of their opertions.

The aim of this study is not to propose the existence of a kind of 'Euro-corporatism' but to explain the conditions under which certain forms of associability and interest intermediation will emerge, and to examine the impact of such forms upon transnational integration of markets in Europe.

The book contains studies of key sectors, particularly in high technology, of business and labour organizatons, and also reviews the importance of size and territoriality.

Anyone with an interest in the development of the European market, government//industry relations, the politics of interest groups and organizations, and neo-corporatism will find this valuable.
