Ways to Liberalization: A report on an ongoing research project

Armingeon, Klaus (13 January 2015). Ways to Liberalization: A report on an ongoing research project (Unpublished). In: Economics & Politics Seminar. Universität Heidelberg. 13.01.2015.

The talk presents the theoretical approach, the design of the data collection and some preliminary results of an ongoing research project on economic liberalization in mature democracies. Starting from findings of an analysis of austerity policies, I show that there is hardly the choice to avoid liberalization, but there are several ways of liberalization. Negotiated liberalization is feasible if problem pressures are low and actors have incentives to negotiate. These incentives are outcomes of politico-institutional configurations.
