Abstract

Este artigo analisa o debate intelectual inglês sobre uma reorganização institucional de tipo corporativo que teve lugar na Grã-Bretanha durante os últimos anos da Primeira Guerra Mundial. Após analisar alguns projetos promovidos no período 1915-1916, o artigo foca-se no Reconstruction Committee, com particular atenção à proposta final elaborada pela subcomissão para o estudo das relações entre empregadores e empregados, dirigida por John H. Whitley, que propusera a instituição dos conselhos industriais conjuntos. Afirmando a necessidade de construir uma sociedade ordenada e harmônica para resolver o conflito social e aumentar a eficiência econômica, a subcomissão recomendara a criação desses conselhos como uma primeira medida para a construção de uma representação corporativa dos interesses organizados, imaginada para promover sua participação no processo legislativo.

The article explores the intellectual debate for a corporatist institutional reorganisation occurred in Great Britain during the last years of the Great War. After analysing various projects prompt up between 1915-1916, the essay focuses on the emergence of the Reconstruction Committee, especially investigating the final report of the Sub-Committee for the Study of the Relations between Employers and Employed, chaired by John H. Whitley, for the institution of the Joint Industrial Councils. Claiming the necessity of building a harmoniously ordered society in order to overcome the social conflict and increase economic efficiency, the sub-commission proposed these councils as the first step towards a corporatist representation of the organised interests, envisaged to promote their active participation in the decision-making process.
