    Abstract

    Working time patterns are multi-faceted and more than one discipline can shed light on their determinants. Existing explanations of trends in working time highlight several socio-economic factors, while the relevance of political factors has been associated with the combination of party policies and welfare institutions that lead to diverging Social Democratic, Liberal, and Christian Democratic « worlds » of work time. This article examines the case of the UK and demonstrates that party government – and, through it, democratic politics – can make a difference within a given model of capitalism or « world of working time ». One notable additional characteristic of this case is the role of trade unions.
