Abstract
The Populist Radical Right party family consists of parties often stigmatized by the political establishment around Europe and is regarded as a rather heterogeneous party family in comparison with other traditional party families in Europe. By comparing Populist Radical Right parties using methods found in the academic literature on party families, this study sets out to test the cohesiveness of the parties in relation to each other. The study postulates similarities in policy as being the main factor of what constitutes party families, using two approaches; relative similarities and absolute similarities. A descriptive analysis sets out to explore the similarities in policy using two databases, The Manifesto Project and Chapell Hill... (More)

The study postulates similarities in policy as being the main factor of what constitutes party families, using two approaches; relative similarities and absolute similarities. A descriptive analysis sets out to explore the similarities in policy using two databases, The Manifesto Project and Chapell Hill Expert Surveys. Transnational linkages, party name and origins are also discussed to complement policy to describe the cohesion of the Populist Radical Right party family. The results of the study show that both relative and absolute similarities in policy can be found, despite contextual differences. A selection consisting of three parties shows that there seems to be shared origins due to mobilization along a post-materialistic cleavage. Despite that the transnational linkages are weak in comparison with other party families the study concludes that the Populist Radical Right party family is substantially cohesive. (Less)
