Growth and Persistence of the Radical Right in Postindustrial Democracies. Advances and Challenges in Comparative

Journal Article (Academic article)

The paper discusses the conceptualization of radical right wing parties. It then defends supply side explanations that focus on the convergence of conventional left and right parties as a condition that enables political entrepreneurs to create new electoral alternatives successfully. Methodological problems of measuring party positions and locating radical right parties in the competitive space are discussed extensively.
