This report (D08) draws on this projet's most developed country reports- Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia and Spain- presented in accompanying D09. this report links the empirical evidence from those country reports to the overall analytical framework. section one assesses the relavance of the four central pillars of our braining model (D01)- bounded rationality, cntext-specific and changing preferences, non-unitary actors, and perceptions of power- for the real-world strategies of actors. The country reports confirm the relevance of those central pillarsin shaping actor strategies but also indicate the need for further refinements to our indicators of relative power. Section two sents the braining model itself. We examine a number of the most important attempts to craft social pacts in the five countries concerned and confirmed the general logic of the model, even if there are also several instances where social pact attempts do not conform to its core predictions. we therefore suggest ways of improving the model's predictive power by making it more complex to allow for variation in the discount rates which indicate actors' time preferences. section threee presents the steps we need to take in improving the model. In the ocnclusion we relate our study to the general literature on social pact emergence.
