Alejandro Weitzmann
, a former adviser to the Chilean government and currently a senior executive at the copper mining company Codelco, with responsibility in the field of social partnership, spoke at a special Policy Network seminar on the future of trade unions and social partnerships, in London on the 13 November 2007. He was joined in the debate by Nita Clarke, a former special adviser to the Prime Minister Tony Blair with responsibility for trade unions.

The event, entitled The Future of Social Partnership: Creating Social Consensus for Reform, examined the reform efforts of the current centre-left governments in Britain and Chile, focusing on the mechanisms they have created to involve trade unions and other social partners in decision-making.

As the leading example of progressive government in South America, the administration of Michelle Bachelet, which is currently putting forward a new Social Pact for Chile, offers a fascinating case-study of the future of social partnership with implications for progressive governance throughout the world.
