English abstract
Populism and the Mistrust of Foreigners – A Reality to Reckon With Right-wing populist parties are making headway in one European country after another – including Sweden in connection with the recent election successes of Sverigedemokraterna [The Sweden Democrats]. It is time to address the challenge that this presence presents. Attempting to ignore these parties by either regarding them as a transient phenomenon or as something far removed from our shores is not a sustainable alternative. Right-wing populist parties are already so well established in the European political arena that a continued democratic and civil societal development in Sweden demands an immediate discussion as to how these parties can best be addressed.
