Overview

Radical right politicians such as Jean-Marie Le Pen in France and Jorg Haider in Austria have achieved electoral successes that have shocked many political observers in recent years, yet many of their counterparts in other countries have not achieved the same results in spite of comparable social and economic conditions in other countries. Norris (comparative politics, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard U.) develops an explanatory theory that points to the importance of the rules determining ballot nomination, campaigning, and election, arguing that electoral success for radical right parties largely depends on how they craft their appeals and build their organizations to fit the structural constraints set by electoral rules.
