The Society Party (Norwegian: Samfundspartiet) was a political party in Norway founded in 1932.[1] The party was founded by author Bertram Dybwad Brochmann, who gained representation in the Norwegian Parliament from Bergen from 1933 to 1936.[2] In a highly symbolic gesture, Brochmann refused to accept his salary as a member of parliament.[1] On the background of the Great Depression, the party sought a total revision of the economic theories of the time.[1][2] The party was later represented in parliament from Nordland from 1937 to 1940 (1945).[2] The party contested its last election in the 1949 parliamentary election, and was dissolved later the same year.[1]
