How does the Council coordinate different views among members?

The Council challenges social partners and Crown members in a dialogue between the three parties to take into account the common interest in their endeavours and actions – this in particular is where the independent Crown members play an important role.

Also important is that the Council’s policy recommendations are supported by common analysis and arguments, making it possible to assess whether these recommendations serve both the public interest and the joint objective of social prosperity.

Unanimous advice clearly indicates broad support, whereas a divided opinion shows the government that support is lacking in certain sectors of society.
