In much of the existing literature on the role of public opinion and democratic policy-making (most of it from the US), interest group influence is portrayed as something that distracts policy-makers from implementing the will of the people, catering to ‘special interests’ instead. In contrast, the core normative foundation of corporatist decision-making is based on the idea that corporatist institutions are superior to interest group pluralism in the sense that corporatism ensures a proper representation of those interests that are difficult to organize and mobilize. In my contribution, I want to provide a critical theoretical discussion of the promises and challenges of corporatist decision-making in relation to the normative goal of ensuring a responsive and representative democracy, drawing on the work of Klaus Armingeon and others.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2019-08-22T11:56:54Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Busemeyer, Marius R.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
