The Economic Council of the Labour Movement
The Economic Council of the Labour Movement (ECLM) is a Danish economic policy institute and think-tank working to promote social justice in Denmark.
ECLM is aiming at a society where economic growth and wealth does not result in increased inequality and new social divisions. Our vision is a society where the economically strong as well as the economically weak, have the same opportunities when it comes to taking an education and follow their personal goals.
ECLMs main objective is to devise and communicate social and economic knowledge, which can qualify and widen the public debate and guide policy makers. ECLM is working both on own initiatives but also in cooperation with The Danish Labour Movement to provide analyzes, reports and economic forecasts, focusing on social and economic problems and solutions.
The Economic Council of the Labour Movement was founded in 1936 as a forum for Danish trade union leaders and representatives of the parliamentary group of the Social Democratic Party to consult discuss and agree on economic issues.
The secretariat employs economists and secretarial personnel. The secretariat carries out research and analysis of international, national, regional and sectoral developments in the economy and the analysis are recognized and regarded as accurate and essential.
The ECLM secretariat is funded by the Danish LO (The Danish TUC), and by revenue from research and analysis carried out on behalf of various clients.
