Of the 14 European countries that enacted codetermination laws, only 2 (Hungary and the Czech Republic) walked them back. Even after, the Czech Republic re-implemented codetermination for large corporations.

Even the walk-backs were not absolute, and in the Czech Republic, did not last. Hungary retained codetermination for firms with two-tier boards (covering most firms in Hungary), and The Czech Republic re-introduced codetermination for large firms in 2017 after abolishing it only 3 years earlier.
