In the process of developing the modern and democratic society that the people of Sweden can enjoy today the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations (UN) in 1948 has been a cornerstone.

Since 1988 a nationalist party called Sveriedemokraterna (freely translated Sweden Democrats) has used these rights to get there opinion heard and is now close to the dream of becoming a part of the Swedish parliament which requires a 4 % minimum in the national election.

As the party grew through out its history so did the link between the party and xenophobia. Even though the extremism has toned down over the last decade, the link might still exist. The thoughts on how other cultures and religions, mostly Islam, are a threat to the Swedish safety, society and history has awoken many pessimists.

This is an essay to explore the party’s politics and compare it to two of the most essential rights of today – freedom of speech and religion. I have analyzed the politics in it self and studied into the human rights, and to both restrictions and responsibility that they may bring to the party as well as yothe current government. (Less)
