Abstract
This paper focuses on the European governments’ decision to involve union and employment representatives in the design and implementation of public policy. It begins by elaborating and plotting over time a measure of the phenomenon at hand (1974-2003), based on coding of textual sources. This reveals no secular growth (or decline) of government willingness to involve or devolve, and consequently no convergence on a pluralist model of interest representation.
