Abstract:

Employing the critical juncture theory (CJT), a discursive institutionalist approach, this paper examines the nature of the changes to social partnership policy at the end of the decade of the 2000s.  Did these changes constitute a transformation in social partnership policy, or were they a continuation of a previously established policy pathway?  The CJT consists of three elements – economic crisis, ideational change, and the nature of the policy change – that must be identified for us to be able to declare with some certainty if the changes to social partnership policy constituted a critical juncture.  In this context, ideational change is very important, constituting the intermediating factor between a crisis and the subsequent nature of the policy change.   Our findings will help explain the nature of the changes to social partnership policy at this time.
