Abstract

The development of socio-economic conflict in Belgium in recent years needs to be seen in the context of an economy undergoing transformation. The sources of this transformation are varied, and in several cases relate to factors outside Belgian society. Two factors in particular stand out as important: a change in the relations between the two regions of the country, with the industrialisation and development of Flanders and the structural decline of Wallonia;1 and the growth of foreign investment and a shift in the control of industry.
