  • Municipalism
  • is a new term, or buzzword, used in debates about new urban movements and the democratization of politics. In Europe it is currently associated especially with cities in Spain, the most prominent Barcelona. However, Municipalism has become a worldwide movement by citizen platforms taking political power and using the city as a starting point for profound democratic change. Municipalism and municipalist politics rest on four essential pillars of Municipalist politics: The feminization of politics, the expansion of the commons, the re-municipialication of public services (i.e., transfer of corporations or other assets to municipal ownership) and the re-designing of democracy.
