Professor Bent Jensen, a distinguished Nordic expert on communism and author of many best-selling books in Danish, gave a lecture on Nordic Communism at a joint meeting of the University of Iceland Institute of International Affairs and Almenna bokafelagid 27 February 2012. This event was a part of a series of lectures organised in cooperation with AECR, the Alliance of European Conservatives and Reformists, on “Europe of the Victims: Remembering Communism”. In Iceland, as in Denmark, there has been a heated discussion on the nature and significance of the domestic communist movement. Were the leading communists agents of a foreign power or patriotic trade unionists? What was the nature of their ties with Moscow? Morgunbladid published an interview with Jensen 4 March, and the leading television host Egill Helgason discussed communism with Jensen (in Danish) on his weekly show on current affairs, transmitted 11 March. Jensen’s lecture is available here on Youtube.
