Du socialisme au Grand Paris solidaire, Henri Sellier ou la passion des villes

Abstract : Henri Sellier has championed the sanitation and the administrative organization of Greater Paris, from 1910 until he was politically dismissed in 1941. Praised by his political opponents, recognized by the Prefects, this socialist figure stands as iconoclast in his own political family. A builder, pragmatic and a real negotiator, Sellier relies on the resources of the institutions and social networks that he has founded and occupied. Liegeman of numerous local representatives, he strongly advocates the mutualisation of local public policies and his political base originates in the municipal socialism. These exemplary and efficient achievements that give shape to his vision, even incomplete, of a solidarity city, stem from his political thinking nurtured with a passion for the City and an ability to compromise in the conduct of public affairs of Greater Paris.
