Abstract
This essay develops a theory for the explanation of the diffrences in succes of Radical Right Populist Parties in Western Europe.

This essay develops a theory for the explanation of the diffrences in succes of Radical Right Populist Parties in Western Europe. In order to create a succesfull radical right populist movement and thus a succesfull radical right populist party, three elements are needed; ?demand?, ?supply? amd ?mobilisation?.

Because the creation of a radical right populist movement is different than the creation of other political movements, the specific ?supply?, ?demand? and ?mobilisation? of radical right populist movements are different as well. In order to analyse the specific elements, factors are given that contribute to the specific creation of radical right populist ?demand?, ?supply? and ?mobilisation?.

To support and test the theory, the theorethical framework will be tested on the political situation regarding Radical Right Populist Parties during the last two centuries in both Flanders as the Netherlands. While Radical Right Populist Parties in the form of the Vlaams Belang has great succes in Flanders, radical right populism has only been succesful for a short term in the Netherlands in 2002 with the Lijst Pim Fortuyn. These two case studies support the theory described in this essay and show that Radical Right Populist Parties only can be succesfull if there is the right ?supply?, ?demand? and ?mobilisation?.
