Comparing and reconceptualising the (populist) radical right

Pontus Odmalm, Jens Rydgren

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This symposium probes contemporary classifications of the “far-right”, “populist radical right” and “radical right” variety. It also considers whether there is a need to look beyond socio-economic factors to explain the upward trajectory such parties experienced in recent years. The symposium thus connects to ongoing debates regarding the nature of this party family (or families) and to previous accounts of their successes across Western Europe.
