Instead of sampling a population of cases that would give a statistical probability of certain choices by the trade unions, I ask about processes that lead to certain behaviour. The former research strategy would be first, hardly feasible, and second, in case it would not include development over time, of limited generalizability in terms of predictions about general tendencies and development. An in-depth analysis of a small number of cases has the advantage of exploring causal paths and linking the decision making to the organizational structures and structural change as well as other mechanisms.

In rational choice theory, actors are assumed to act only in their own interests, defined at an individual level. In contrast, acting in the interest of other people will not occur unless these interests coincide with their own. The means to achieve goals are also rationally chosen. Participation in protest (which equates to no free-riding) is possible when there are negative/punishment incentives applied (Olson 1971: 65). This account can hardly explain, for instance, the participation of the Polish workers in demonstrations in defence of the interests of Western workers.

Furthermore, the limited availability of cases that could be used in a comparison controlling for different factors can be overcome by a research design based on within-case analysis. It is advised to bring together a small number of within-case analyses under a theoretical framework. A congruence method, which would be the effect of such a comparison, is recommended in a situation where the variation in cases is not available. ). Furthermore, the analytical causal explanation type of process tracing can enrich black-box theoretical explanations such as rational choice (ibid: 200–211).
