Power in the City Hall - parties and politicians on Stockholm City Council since 1945

This research project focuses on Stockholm's municipal politics after 1945.

It has three main themes:

- the city of Stockholm and its surroundings

- political parties

- politics and the organisation of democracy

How has the city of Stockholm acted in relation to its surroundings (neighbouring municipalities, the region, state and EU)? How have parties and politics changed since 1945? How has the city organised its democratic government?

Research is led by Professor Torbjörn Nilsson from the Institute of Contemporary History at Södertörn University, and Professor Anders Gullberg, Research Director at Stockholmsforskningen [the Committee for Stockholm Research]. Funding is provided by the City of Stockholm and the research project will be completed in 2013.
