PEOPLE AND INSTITUTIONS. WHO CREATES A NEW DEAL? (Ludzie i instytucje: kto tworzy nowy lad?)
Languages of publication
It aims to determine the question: where are placed main actors of a new deal. The role of organizations, institutions as well as individuals and social groups under onging social change is considered. The author makes this distinction in terms of neoinstitutional approach. The main thesis concerns evolution of the role of chief social forces engendering this change: once it proceeds social actors become more and more important and role of organizations and institutions is getting down. The author shows that forces which contributed to collapse of the old system (e.g. trade unions and church), cannot lead in construction of a market democracy. Consequent on this evolution is weakness of institutional forces and social actors of the changes. Social actors are involved, chiefl y, in a local activity. The two main consequences of this situation are considered. First, it is possible that current activity outside politics will be established leading to neocorporatist solutions. Second, the activity may create 'new politics' in the future: however it will not be based on old divisions related to ‘solidaristic' vs ‘antisolidaristic' traditions.
