Hybrid Participation. A Hinge between Individual Participation and Institutional Co-determination
AbstractThis article addresses a key problem of the German system of co-determination that primarily relates to the changed economic framework conditions of work. It presents a find as a variant of democratic participation that could function as a hinge between direct participation and representative co-determination. As a form of work participation it was included into the German Labour Constitution Act (BetrVG) as part of the major reform in 2001. These forms of ‘hybrid participation’ can potentially combine institutionally secured practices that are participatory oriented as well. Using own qualitative findings within the framework of in-company development projects and completing it with representative data the text analyses to what extent hybrid participation tools are already in use and what relevant experiences have been made.
