From Belgian Unity to Flemish-Walloon Duality. The Story of Socialism in Belgium
(Harry van Velthoven) The Low Countries - 2000, № 8, pp. 205-213
The author recounts the history of socialism in Belgium. He begins with the founding in 1885 of the Belgian Workers' Party, which in 1945 became the Belgian Socialist Party. In 1978 the unitary Belgian party split into separate Flemish and Walloon parties. Van Velthoven concludes with the influence on the Belgian political landscape of Tony Blair's `Third Way', with some narrowing of the gulf between liberals and socialists.
