Contemporary National-Populism in Scandinavia – Identifying types and determining factors

ABSTRACT. This is a short, comparative paper about the contemporary National-Populist parties in the three largest Scandinavian countries. In it, the author argues that the label ‘National-Populist’ best describes the parties in Scandinavia. Furthermore, an identification is made of two main types of populist movements in the region and the general ideological developments are traced in order to identify which are shared, and which differ, among the parties in question. It also treats some of the factors that are likely to have caused the shared history and features of parties across the region, such as linguistic similarity, the states’ creation of an additional, regionalist level of nationalist feeling, and other socio-economic developments.
