Abstract

Public committees - a backbone of the Scandinavian type corporatism - creates networks between interest groups and the people representing interest groups. The paper analyses and compares the networks created in 1975 - at the height of corporatism - and 2010 - when corporatist structures had somewhat eroded. Paradoxically it is hyphothesized that the erosion of corporqatism strengthens the most resourceful groups at the prize of the lessprivileged.
