The Aloof Election Manifesto: Radical Political Right in Finland in the Borderlines of Neoliberalism and Cultural Nativism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The rise of the populist radical political right is one of the significant phenomena in recent European party politics. In this article, I examine the ideology of the radical right in Finland by analysing the Aloof Election Manifesto, an election platform published by radical wing of the Finns Party for national parliament elections 2011. The analysis shows that the ideology challenges traditional notions of nationalism. It combines cultural nativism, secularism and economic neoliberalism to the fear of Islam and multiculturalism.
