Mapping the European urban left: the Barcelona experience

McNeill, D. (2003) Mapping the European urban left: the Barcelona experience Antipode, 35, (1), pp. 74-94.

Record type: Article


This paper explores the transition in Barcelona's city council's urban policy during 20 years of uninterrupted political control. It focuses particularly on several trends within Pasqual Maragall's period in office (1982-1997) and argues that issues of leadership, extramunicipal policy and electoral rationality are fundamental to understanding the full complexity of this transition. The paper seeks to locate the Barcelona experience in a comparative context and calls for a greater sensitivity to the contemporary political geography of the European urban left.
