Addressing Research Themes 1 and, to a lesser degree, 3 the project would comparatively and historically analyze the consensual patterns of social and political interaction and the connected relatively large communication capacity. These patterns are the cultural framework of the effective corporatism and base On this of the successful socio-economic development in Austria, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland. In an era of global economic challenges and social change these countries are praised for generally maintaining a combination of a relatively high employment rate, a comparatively low level of material inequality and a still generous system of social welfare. The overarching questing of the proposal is whether this framework could be an option for other European countries and whether it could contribute to a truly European 'social model'.
