"The effects and impact of employee participation and employee ownership continue to be themes of enduring interest to social scientists from a range of disciplines. This is no doubt due to the emergence of new instances of employee ownership in eastern Europe and Russia, to the growth of employee share ownership plans in the United States and of profit sharing schemes in many advanced industrial economies. Partly it is also due to the growth of social cooperatives in the welfare area as old models of the welfare state are transformed to more market based systems. There is also a lively interest in the theoretical consequences of alternative forms of stakeholder ownership and control of enterprise performance."
