Radical Right-wing Parties in Europe
Professor Jens Rydgren, Department of Sociology, Stockholm University, will present “Radical Right-wing Parties in Europe”.
In this talk I will reflect upon some explanations to the emergence of radical right-wing parties in Europe. In addition to this overall theme, which entails a cross-time comparison, three questions in particular will be addressed: (1) Why are such parties more successful in some countries than in others? (2) What characterize these parties, in terms of ideology, discourse, and organization? (3) What characterize the voters who support these parties?
