The role of the state, since it is the sovereign power that sets the legal framework in society, is not limited to wage regulation. Economic, organizational, and technological changes — particularly that of internationalization — caused economic performance to become vulnerable. The state's shift from pluralism to outcome-oriented regulation to make industrial relations more receptive to performance requirements can be viewed in two reliant aspects. The first dimension concerns how state regulation relates to organized industrial relations while the second refers to the state being substantive or procedural. This chapter examines how substantive state regulation and procedural state regulation are interrelated through using three regulatory approaches to make industrial relations compatible with what is needed for economic performance: neoliberalism, statism, and corporatism.

Keywords:   state, sovereign power, wage regulation, internationalization, neoliberalism, statism, corporatism
