Le dinamiche di coalizione nella politica pensionista dell'Europa continentale


Häusermann, S (2008). Le dinamiche di coalizione nella politica pensionista dell'Europa continentale. Rivista Italiana di Politiche Pubbliche, 3:53-86.

Abstract

This article tries to provide a theorization and empirical analysis of the politics of gradual transformative change: How are political majorities built? Under what conditions is incremental path-shifting change possible or likely to occur? The results show three points: a) Policies are multidimensional and actors of a same subsystem pursue different goals. b) Actors can combine these different dimensions in ways as to allow for political exchange, and for the formation of variable reform coalitions. And c) the success of such mechanisms of exchange and coalition-building depends on the institutional framework. Empirically, the article analyzes major pension reforms in France, Germany and Switzerland in the 1990s

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
