Title Europe's Bogeyman : Europeanization of Nationalism
Author(s) Hellström, Anders
Date 2015
Editor(s) Persson, Hans-Åke; Petersson, Bo; Stokholm Banke, Cecilie
English abstract
The encapsulation of Europe´s borders inside the national states and current demands to limit migration inte the EU lie at the core of this study. I discuss how feelings of anxiety towards growing diversity in the population transmute into party political preferences. I show how the nationalist-populist party the Sweden Democrats in Sweden mobilize voters from both the right and the left, using the national myth of the People´s Home to distinguish between the fearful outside and the authenticity of the inside.
