The Establishment of the Austrian Republic

  • Elisabeth Barker


In 1918, the creation of the new Austrian Republic was the joint work of the three political parties — Social Democrats, Christian Socials and German Nationalists. As the Socialist, Bauer, wrote: ‘The Austrian State was fundamentally the product of a contrat social, an agreement to found a State, arrived at between the various classes of the Austrian people, as represented by the political parties. On the basis of a compact between the parties, the whole of the ... deputies constituted themselves a provisional national assembly and proclaimed the establishment of the Austrian State.’12
