abstract
The project explains the development and size of the Belgian trade union density, 1945-1995. We evaluate the assumed causes that we find in the literature by three quantitative approaches: the institutional, business cycle and structural approach. The insights of the new historical institutionalism (path-dependence) and the regulation school are important as a theoretical framework (qualitative approach).
