Based on three basic models of interest policy (regional corporatism model, regional pluralism model and mixed model) and in the context of regional development and the development of civil society, we analyze the regional social dialogue in Slovakia. The empirical part of the study consists of a comparison of two analogous researches of actors of regional social dialogue in Slovakia from 1999 and 2020. Research findings and analyzes confirm that in Slovakia, regional social dialogue has not been yet institutionalized in any of the mentioned models. Actors in the regional social dialogue cooperate mainly in the regional labour offices employment committees (which follows from the Employment Services Act) and on an ad hoc basis. They evaluate critically the regional social dialogue in Slovakia and demand its legislative regulation, definition of its competencies and financial support.
