Pierre Laroque and the Welfare State in Post-war France

Oxford University Press

The advocacy of corporatism found a receptive audience in interwar during the thirties, as many of Laroque’s contemporaries had come to believe that the Third Republic had failed to resolve the social, political and economic problems which confronted interwar France. It was in this context that he participated in various intellectual forums which sought to develop solutions to these questions, such as the Groupe du 9 Juillet and X-crise, while publishing articles in likeminded reviews such as L’Homme Nouveau and Les Nouveaux Cahiers, activities which associated him with the neosocialist and technocratic movements of the time. By the end of the decade Laroque had become an expert in the field of industrial relations, as was demonstrated by the publication of Les rapports entre patrons et ouvriers in 1938. It was during this same period, moreover, that he came to believe that it was incumbent upon social policy to address the cultural and psychological aspects of industrial strife, since it was a sense of inferiority which accounted for the alienation of labour in contemporary France.
