EURO-DEM studies with the methods of conceptual and social history, and political theory, the circulation of the idea of workplace democracy among European trade-unions and the academia from 1945 to the present. In the 20th century industrial democracy has been a vibrant movement that encompassed a broad spectrum of meanings, from internal union democracy over collective bargaining to co-determination at shop-floor, enterprise, industry and national economic level. Since the beginning, trade unions have played a major role in the theoretical promotion and in the concrete management of workplace democracy in most European countries.
The EURO-DEM project is jointly hosted by the Centre Marc Bloch in Berlin and the Institute for Social Movements in Bochum and it is funded by the ANR and DFG.
