Summary/Abstract: This paper discusses the participation of Serbian trade unions in political processes, focusing on their attempt to restrain capitalism through the participation in the activities and functions of the Social and Economic Council. One of the main objectives of this paper is to establish whether the Social and Economic Council is an agent in the promotion and support of a different model of social and economic relations in which trade unions are actively involved, or a tool which the government and employers use to manipulate trade unions. Another aspect of the paper is the power (or the lack of it) of Serbian trade unions in general. This opens a host of questions related to various issues, from the current situation in Serbia, organization and functioning of the state, rule of law, to Serbian involvement in the Euro-Atlantic integrations, to whether there is a genuine desire among the political, economic and intellectual elite to support the transformation of Serbian society into one governed by rule of law and informed by social dialogue.
