The Birth of the Social Democratic Movement (1848–1916)

  • Chapter

Abstract

The social democratic movement gradually emerged throughout Northern Europe during the latter half of the nineteenth century and involved frequent exchanges of ideas across borders. In the Scandinavian countries, postponed industrialization contributed to a relatively late development of social democratic parties and trade unions, and it was the German Social Democrats who became the main source of ideological inspiration for the budding labour movement.
