Chapter 5: Membership-based strategies: Organizing and recruitment
Open access

The second of the four chapters detailing the findings, this chapter looks at the diffusion of organizing practices from the Anglo-American countries to countries with a corporatist heritage. Identifying multiple framings of organizing practices, these are distinguished from membership recruitment. The chapter draws on the experience of organizers from the four countries for a detailed account of organizing practices, from initiation to maturation, tying them to the objectives for pursuing membership-based strategies as established in the previous chapter.
