Abstract [en]

Corporative arrangements have a history in Sweden that can be dated back since the beginning of the 20th century. The public feelings of mistrust against the political system and those in charge of it grew. In order to implement politics, politicians need to be community oriented and based to better serve and affect the general public. As a response to this the corporative arrangements and boards that consisted of laymen were implemented. Throughout the years there have been signs of the decline in corporatism. A loss of representation in different boards in regards to companies and organizations have changed how the committees view and work with reports. At the same time that organisations lost some of their representation, the use of consultants and lobbyists increased. This has highlighted the question, what other ways do organizations today take in order to affect political decisions?

 

The topic of this essay is how one organization in particular the union of IF Metall works with these issues. It will demonstrate if and how they have been affected by the decline of corporatism. This topic will also cover what approach they use to affect the political decisions today. Based on previous studies on the matter, I have conducted interviews with two organizations in order to gain deeper knowledge of how this has affected them. One of them being the union IF Metall which is the focus of this study, as well as the Swedish Trade Union Organisation, LO, hence IF Metall constitutes a part of the federation that is LO.

 

The result of my studies concluded that the signs of the decline of corporatism are valid.  It has in some ways affected the organisations, but not to that extent as some scientists might have assumed. The organisations themselves have no wish to go back to the corporative arrangements in order to gain the representation they once had. Instead they point to another issue that have affected them with much wider implications, which is the change of government that occurred in Sweden 2006.
