Main content

 “To this day, representative participation rights in Sweden have been reserved for union members both on the company level and on the board level, while all employees have voting rights in Norway.

Our PhD-Candidate  Katharina Sass has traced this difference back in time and has used historical evidence from relevant periods of the 20th century to illuminate how approaches of Swedish and Norwegian unions to representative worker participation evolved.

Her article gives a synthetical, comparative account of union strategies, starting with the period after WWI, and highlights the importance of studying the history of current participation structures.”
