This cross-national diversity has inspired multiple explanations ranging from institutional to workplace or socio-demographic factors. In this comparative multilevel analysis, we combine personal, workplace and macro-institutional explanations of union membership using the European Social Survey. By controlling for individual factors, we test the cross-national effect of meso- and macro-level variables, in particular workplace representation, establishment size, Ghent unemployment insurance and a society’s social capital. We conclude that all these institutional and social contextual factors matter in explaining differences in union membership.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dc:creator>Koos, Sebastian</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bernhard, Ebbinghaus</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Claudia, Göbel</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/36390"/> <dc:creator>Claudia, Göbel</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Social capital, ‘Ghent’ and workplace contexts matter : Comparing union membership in Europe</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Bernhard, Ebbinghaus</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-12-19T08:31:27Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/36390/1/Ebbinghaus_2-hs7o0phk0yzk1.pdf"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
