Panebianco means that the motives have changed from idealists to careerists and this essay will try to explain if today’s party members, who have participated in political parties, are “believers” or “careerists”. The empirical analysis is done with individual interviews with six party members from three different parties; the moderate party, the social democratic party and the green party in Lund, Sweden. The modest results of this essay are that both collective and selective incentives are reasons for party members to participate, with a tendency to selective incentives and exercise of power. (Less)
