Abstract [en]

The witness seminar ”Den skandinaviska skolan i systemutveckling under 1970- och 1980-talen: Exemplen DEMOS och UTOPIA” [The Scandinavian School in Systems Development during the 1970s and the 1980s: The Examples DEMOS and UTOPIA] was held at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm on 31 March 2008 and was led by Per Lundin. It treated the emergence of user participation in systems development during the 1970s. The project DEMOS which started in 1975 focussed on the consequences of computerization and its prime concern was how employees should be able to influence organization and planning of work in companies. In its approach DEMOS was inspired by the pioneering work made by Kristen Nygaard and the Norwegian trade union in the beginning of the 1970s. The project UTOPIA followed DEMOS. It began in 1981 and was a joint project between the Swedish Centre of Working Life (Arbetslivscentrum), KTH, Aarhus University and graphic workers in the Nordic countries. UTOPIA dealt with trade union based development of, and training in, computer technology and work organization, especially text and image processing in the graphic industries. It was emphasized at the seminar that the cultural, political and social context was important concerning the development of the Scandinavian School, especially the radicalization of the universities in the wake of 1968 as well as the legislation of the Codetermination Act (Medbestämmandelagen, MBL) in 1976. Also discussed was the different computer policies developed by unions such as the Swedish Trade Union Confederation (LO) and the Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees (TCO).
