Sammanfattning

The development of the sociology of work in Finland occurred in two phases: (1) the development of the welfare state (1945–1980s) marked by the consolidation of the sub-discipline, and (2) the rise of the competition state (late 1980s–present) when the scope of the sub-discipline was widened. Although the Finnish sociology of work has been equally influenced by positivist, reformist and critical approaches, it has maintained its fundamentally consensual nature. Critical paradigms have never assumed a central role. There is a considerable ‘reformist’ tendency in the SoW producing solutions to societal problems, and in many cases in the form of action-oriented research and developmental projects. This reflects the overall pragmatic nature of Finnish policy-making and close social distance between the government, labour market organizations and academia.
