Summary/Abstract: There were several attempts on workers’ self-management throughout the 20th century in Hungary: multiple factories were occupied by workers during the end of the 1st and 2nd World Wars, the revolution of 1956 and the regime change of 1989. Erzsébet Szalai, Tamás Krausz and Eszter Bartha are experts on this topic. In this interview they walk us through the various attempts on workers’ self-management and talk about the difficulties and dilemmas of movements that try to seize the means of production.
