Regulated self-regulation is a mechanism of regulation, which unifies the private interests and state aims into a new arrangement of tasks. Even though this phenomenon is above all observed in a way that is related to the present, thus it can also be situated in the past. The focus of observation has been oriented toward Germany, which has a special tradition of governmental involvement of intermediate forces. On the other hand, toward the end of the 19th century, in many Western societies, a state-interventionist phase can be seen. Within these situations existing state fields of responsibility were expanded and new fields created. This was connected with the intensification of the administrative influence and legal programming, but also with a strengthen inclusion of private actors, whose were to different degrees permitted to shape things as they saw fit. The varieties of such regulated self-regulation were manifold: in addition to the integration in the corporatist concepts, one is more likely to find liberal variants, which were for the most part left the initiatives up to the private organizations, cooperative negotiation solutions or hidden forms in which the state’s decision-making prerogatives remained outwardly intact, however, discretely incorporated intermediary actors. These variable forms will be illustrated in this volume by specifically looking at Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, France, Sweden, Italy and the USA.
