Slovenia stands out as the only post-communist country to have established a
corporatist system and centralized wage bargaining at the national level in the
1990s. This article analyses the emergence and sustainability of Slovenian
corporatism as well as the ways in which it has shaped policymaking during the
economic crisis. Drawing on recent advances in institutional analysis, this article
develops a coalitional argument to account for the emergence of centralized
wage bargaining in the 1990s and for decentralization in more recent years.
