Kamp, motstånd och utopier i Svenska Kommunalarbetareförbundets strejk 2003
PhD Candidate: Kristin Linderoth
The aim of my doctoral thesis is to, from Marxist and feminist perspectives, explore the debates surrounding and experiences of the Swedish Municipal Workers’ Union strike in 2003. I want to discuss current conditions for unionized, emancipatory aspirations concerning mainly class and gender within the labour movement. I’m interested in the processes linked to social relations, power and resistance which are operative in attempts at social change in late modernity, and wish to locate these in the tension laden field between a changing welfare state, globalisation, neoliberal hegemony and feminist visions.
