Zusammenfassung

Die britischen Chambers of Commerce sind freiwillige und privatrechtliche Körperschaften. Anhand der Entwicklung ihrer Dienstleistungen seit dem späten 18. Jahrhundert kann gezeigt werden, wie seit den 1980er Jahren markt-getriebene Dynamiken die Mitgliedernachfrage in einem größeren Ausmaß betonen und eine Veränderung des Leistungsportfolios mit sich bringen, um sich in einer veränderten Umwelt zu behaupten. Zudem analysiert der Beitrag die Ambivalenzen der Vertragsbeziehungen zur Regierung bei der Leistungserbringung, die neben Ressourcenzufluss eben auch eine „Überdehnung“ mit sich brachte. Trotz wiederholter Initiativen, den Kammern einen öffentlich-rechtlichen Status zu verleihen, erwiesen sie sich als institutionell stabil. Dies ist durch eine geringe Bereitschaft der Parteien, den Organisationsstatus zu verändern, die Delegation von Aufgaben und die Anpassung des Dienstleistungsportfolios an die Mitgliedererwartungen zu erklären.
