History

Seine-Saint-Denis was largely part of the Seine département until 1968. It has a veritable history as a left-wing stronghold, belonging to the ceinture rouge of Paris. Especially the French Communist Party has always maintained a strong presence in the département, and still controls the city councils in cities such as Saint Denis, Aubervilliers, Bobigny, and la Courneuve. Seine-Saint-Denis is one of the two départements where the communist party has a majority in the regional council.

Geography

Seine-Saint-Denis is located to the north-east of Paris. It has a surface area of only 236 km², making it one of the smallest départements in France. Seine-Saint-Denis and two other small départements, Hauts-de-Seine and Val-de-Marne, form a ring around Paris, known as the petite couronne. They form, together with five other départements, the région of Île-de-France.
