The social dialog can be perceived like one of the evolution dimensions of the public action in the light of contracts, regularization structures and decentralization development.
The main objective of the social dialog is to favor the democratic participation and the consensus.
There are at least four reasons for which the social dialog can be successfully used as an public governance instrument.
* the social dialog allows the amelioration of public decision process.
* the social dialog favors the acceptance of the decisions taken by the public authorities, the consultancies and debates serving for the prevention of the resistance to the decisions taken.
But, as we can talk about social dialog as an succesfull public governance instrument, we must admit and understand its limits:
* The social dialog is an instrument, not a target by itself.
In addition, it is not always possible to organize a frame for social dialog.
* The social dialog is also an expensive process and time consuming for all the parts involved: administration, trade unions, employers, enterprises.
