From radical right to neo-nationalist: Danish party politics, 1973-2011 (Sarah Valdez & Maureen A. Eger )

Abstract
This research note provides a case study illustrating cross-national trends reported in recent research on the radical right. Using party manifesto data, we examine Denmark from 1973-2011 and find that the radical right has moved toward economic leftism and social conservatism, creating a cleavage within the party family over time. Furthermore, nationalist claims increasingly distinguish the Danish radical right from other party families, including their radical right predecessors.

Keywords
