About the Authors
  • Radical right parties have only been successful in a few countries. Why do such a small percentage of voters choose the radical right in Germany? Why is the radical right winning more seats in Austria than in France and Germany? Terri Givens argues that radical right parties will have difficulty attracting voters and winning seats in electoral systems that encourage strategic voting and/or strategic coordination by the mainstream parties. Her analysis demonstrates that electoral systems and party strategy play a key role in the success of the radical right.

    • Comparative (France, Germany, Austria, and Denmark)
    • Empirical analysis
    • The radical right and immigration is an important topic in the media today

    Reviews & endorsements

    “The recent successes of far-Right parties in Europe are fueling controversy over the cause of this development. Givens examines the voting records of radical Right parties in four European countries and attempts to explain why, in democratic countries facing similar economic conditions, some have been more successful than others. The author uses survey data, case studies, and regression analysis to examine casual relationships, and a model to explain differences in voting.”
