About this book

evaluates the practice of voluntary agreements in European countries, focusing on Austria, Denmark, and the Netherlands, showing that both the design and the success of voluntary agreements strongly depend on specific circumstances, notably the national policy culture or style, the structure of the economic sectors involved, and the influence of the EU.
