The History of Municipal Socialism

Welcome to a guest lecture in English June 10, 2024. Professor Shelton Stromquist presents his book Claiming the City, about the history of the labor movement and in particular municipal socialism in a number of countries, among them Sweden.

For more than a century, municipal socialism has fired the imagination of workers struggling to make cities livable and democratic. At every turn, certain elites challenged their right to rule.
