SASE Special Mini-Conference on Finance, States, and the Economy: Financial Participation and Profit Sharing

In the SASE Mini-Conference, we would like to discuss financial participation in an adequately broad and interdisciplinary way. We are particularly interested in questions such as:

  • There is a great variety of financial participation schemes among companies. How do di erent forms of financial participation work? What are employers’ motivation introducing nancial participation schemes?
  • In the economic and financial crisis, the discussion about goals and functions of employee financial participation became a new focus. Is financial participation a proper `trade’ for companies and employees during a global crisis? Do employee buy-outs provide a solution for companies in crisis?
  • Social partners have a crucial role in introduction and development of employee financial participation. What are the positions and roles of trade unions and work councils on financial participation?
  • During the socio-economic transformation the New Member States of the European had the chance to choose employee financial participation as an institution. Under which conditions did they follow this path and how did financial participation develop?
  • `A Piece of the Cake for Social Justice’ is the slogan of an European initiative and platform to promote financial participation in Europe. Does financial participation address social justice?
  • The relationship between financial participation and productivity has been a main focus among researchers, but have not been answered finally.
  • Research on industrial democracy has a long tradition. Which role do worker-owned enterprises like Mondragon play in the discussionabout employee financial participation? What are their advantages and disadvantages?
