In theory, an association with a large domain requires a large organizing capacity. However, in practice, this organizing capacity depends also on how the organization's domain is related to other associations. Because of inter-associational competition, overlapping domains of organizations would result in a more fragmented system with a lower level of organizing capacity. Because organizing capacity lies in an association's ability to bring interests together, a country's most general representational space will be taken into consideration. For an association to be included in the study, its membership domain must have a national territorial coverage and an inter-industry branch coverage. This chapter analyses the representational domains and their heterogeneity, trends, and impacts of both unions and employer associations.
