Over the last several years worker cooperatives of many kinds have sprung up all around the world. As a result, industrial relations in the workplace have changed dramatically as workers have come to own and run their own enterprises. This book provides evidence on how these new enterprises are functioning today. Using evidence from their extensive research in various such firms, the authors identify the consequences for both the organisation and the workers when those who do the work also manage. Setting forth an original theory of democratic organisations, they reveal the very real dilemmas and trade-offs that democratic work organisations face, as well as the specific conditions in which workplace democracy flourishes or declines.

Auf der Suche nach einer neuen Ordnung

Vorlesungen zur Politik der Freiheit im 21. Jahrhundert

In glänzenden Analysen stellt Ralf Dahrendorf dar, welche Gefahren der liberalen Ordnung in den demokratisch verfaßten Staaten drohen und welche Hindernisse ihrer Etablierung in Ländern im Wege stehen, die sie kaum oder nie gekannt haben. In den westlichen Demokratien ist die Freiheit durch die demokratischer Willensbildung entzogene Globalisierung und den neuen illiberalen Regionalismus bedroht, aber auch gefährdet duch einen politischen Autoritarismus und sein Pendant, die Apathie der Bürger. In der postkommunistischen Welt können die gerade zur Demokratie Bekehrten an ihr schon wieder zu zweifeln beginnen, weil der Wohlstand, den man mit einer demokratisschen Verfassung verschwistert glaubt, sich nicht einstellen will. In den Ländern der "Dritten Welt" schließlich können gerade die Modernisierungsprozesse mit ihren großen Verheißungen und kleinen Fortschritten gefährliche Gegenbewegungen bis hin zum religiösen Fundamentalismus und zum Terrorismus auslösen.
