Hertog, Steffen (2005) Building the body politic: the emerging corporatism in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf. Chroniques du Yémen et de la Péninsule Arabe, 2004 (12). ISSN 1248-0568
Steffen Hertog’s article argues that Saudi Arabian regime has embarked upon the modernization of its authoritarian rule by attempting to institutionalize important aspects of the political debate. The way this is being done, he proposes, is best captured with the time-honoured concept of corporatism. It helps to bring the kingdom back into the framework of comparative politics, testing and giving new nuances to familiar concepts.
