This paper reflects on the conceptual and operational confines of corporatist theory and suggests that it be reviewed to include regime theory. Broadening the discourse in such a way will enhance the explanatory value of corporatist theory as a frame of reference, and allows for the inclusion of the informal political economy in the context of state formation and democracy in developing political economies.
