    A peculiar practice: Intra-party democracy and leader selection in Sweden2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There are various reasons to expect Swedish parties to demonstrate a high degree of intra-party democracy. However, data collected by the Political Party Database Working Group suggests that Swedish parties do not actually outperform most other Western democracies in this respect. What is more, we know that Swedish party leaders are chosen in a way that observers in many other countries would regard as profoundly undemocratic. In this paper, we look more closely at this particular aspect of intra-party democracy in Sweden. We describe how the leader-selection process works, focusing on three recent instances. An important objective is to develop a set of fine-grained, qualitative indicators that can be used in cross-national, comparative studies of how parties delegate to their leaders and hold them accountable.

    Managed Intra-Party Democracy: Precursory Delegation and Party Leader Selection2017In: Party Politics, ISSN 1354-0688, E-ISSN 1460-3683, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 55-65Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The question of how party leaders are selected has recently, and belatedly, come under systematic comparative scrutiny. If it is the location of intra-party power that interests us, however, it might be that some of the more observable indicators in such processes, such as the identity of the selectorate, are not actually the most revealing ones. Using a delegation perspective, we thus present a framework for analysing prior steps in leader selection and relate it to various ideal-typical constellations of intra-party power. The framework encompasses, first, what we call precursory delegation, with focus especially on an agent that, formally or informally, manages the selection process before it reaches the selectorate. Second, the framework takes account of the degree to which the process is managed rather than left open to free competition between leader candidates. We illustrate the framework primarily with instances of leader selection in two Swedish parties.

    Abstract [en]

    The parliamentary election of 14 September 2014 induced decidedly mixed feelings in the Swedish Green Party (Miljöpartiet de gröna). It led to the ejection of the centre-right government and the installation, for the first time, of Green cabinet ministers. However, the party also experienced a small but unexpected loss of votes compared to its score in the previous election. Moreover, partly because a far-right party built impressively on its breakthrough into the national parliament in 2010 the new government rests on a precariously narrow parliamentary base.

    A party system in flux: the Swedish parliamentary election of September 20182019In: West European Politics, ISSN 0140-2382, E-ISSN 1743-9655Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the Swedish parliamentary election of 7 September 2018, the biggest parties, the Social Democrats and the Moderates, both lost votes compared to their scores in the previous election, but not as many as they had feared. Commensurately, the radical-right challenger party, the Sweden Democrats (SD), which had seemed certain to profit from Sweden's dramatic experience of the European migration crisis, did well, but not as well as it had hoped. The result left the array of parliamentary forces fragmented and finely balanced. Only after months of negotiations could a government be formed. Eventually, the incumbent coalition received a renewed parliamentary mandate. At the same time, the party system was transformed.

    A Loyal Rookie? The Sweden Democrats’ First Year in the European Parliament2015In: Polish Quarterly of International Affairs, ISSN 1230-4999, no 2, p. 59-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 2014 election, the Eurosceptic and anti-immigration Sweden Democrats (SD) for the first time entered the European Parliament. The article first sheds light on the question of why the SD ended up in the EFDD parliamentary party group with a discussion of both the history of the party and its stance on some of the most important issues.In order to assess what inclusion in the EFDD has meant in regard to its behaviour, analysis of roll call data is presented. The results indicate that the SD tends to vote similarly to UKIP. Moreover, and surprisingly, the coherence between the SD and the Danish People’s Party is very low, indicating that group membership is more important than political affinity for the SD in deciding on its voting stance in the EP.

    Contextual Impact on New Party Entrance2006Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Although much of the first half of the 20th century was affected by major events such as war and dictatorship, theparty systems of the Western Europe stayed quite static. In the words of Lipset and Rokkan, the party systems hadfrozen and were still in the middle of the 1960s a reflection of the cleavage structures which dominated the firstdecades of the century. Somewhat ironically, just years after their study was published, an explosion of new partiesentering national parliaments took place more or less all over Western Europe. This enlightens the need forunderstanding why and when new parties enter national parliaments for the first time.This study shows that the cross-national variation between the West European countries are significant and thatall three Scandinavian countries can be labelled as low-scorers when it comes to number new parties in their nationalparliaments. The survey also shows that more new parties have entered during the latter part of the 20th century thanduring the 1960s and 1970s.Three different types of factors, institutional, societal and economic, are tested to explain the cross-countryvariations. Overall the analysis gives weak results. Some institutions and economic indicators seem to explain at leastsome of the variance. But most of these factors, for instance electoral system, and the societal conditions seem to beof little importance. The main conclusion drawn from this is the difficulty of explaining new party entrance with theuse of system-level analysis. In-depth case studies can perhaps be a more appropriate way to get an understanding ofwhen new parties enter national parliaments.

    Målsättning riksdagen: Ett aktörsperspektiv på nya partiers inträde i det nationella parlamentet2012Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During much of the 20th century, the national party systems of Western Europe remained largely unchanged. However, beginning in the 1970s, these frozen party systems slowly started to melt. As the number of parties has increased, the question of what explains new party entrance has also attracted more scholarly interest.

    Despite this increased attention, the study of new political parties still suffers from a structuralist bias. The implication is that the fates of new parties are decided almost exclusively by external factors. Some scholars focus on the institutional environment; others emphasize sociological explanations, such as the formation of new cleavages in society.

    Yet such non-actor-centred perspectives risk being excessively deterministic. They also struggle to explain why some parties succeed in gaining entrance to legislatures while others, seemingly under the same external circumstances, fail. In this thesis, therefore, a new way to study parties and their path to parliament is proposed. Starting with the notion that external conditions alone cannot explain new party entrance, the thesis takes an agency-based perspective. Three sets of strategies are identified as being important means for a party to influence its chances of getting into parliament. They concern the party's resources, its political project and its external relations. In what ways can supply and management of resources, policies and relations with other parties affect the potential for becoming a parliamentary party?

    Through four in-depth case studies of new entrants into the Swedish national parliament, the Riksdag, the thesis concludes that there are some important commonalities in their paths to parliament. Especially with regard to their resources and their political project, the empirical evidence supports the initial premise: new party entrance is unthinkable without successful strategic behaviour.

    New Party Entrance: Analyzing the Impact of Political Institutions2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Although research on new parties now is more common than just a couple of decades ago, we still lack a more general theory of when new parties manage to enter national parliaments for the first time. In this article I try to fill some of the gap in the literature by analyzing the impact of certain formal political institutions. Using a dataset made up of election results held in 18 West European countries between 1960 and 2005, some tentatively important political institutions are scrutinized. I find the electoral system is an important factor in the explanation of when new parties enter national parliaments. The impact of state subsidies to parties is, on the other hand, rather weak. This runs contrary to the cartel thesis, which implies that such subsidies serve to block the entrance of new parties. Overall, however, the institutional framework can provide only a partial explanation and can only be seen as one aspect of new party entrance. Socio-economic factors as well as actor-centred factors are other aspects with potential explanatory power.

    New party parliamentary entry in Western Europe, 1960-20102014In: European Journal of Government and Economics, ISSN 2254-7088, E-ISSN 2254-7088, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 5-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the number of studies of new political parties is gradually increasing, we still lack a comprehensive understanding of when new parties manage to enter national parliaments. The objective of this article is to explain the circumstances under which new parties enter national parliaments for the first time. Unlike earlier research, this study does not focus on individual party families. Instead, generally applicable explanations are sought. This is achieved through an examination of the importance of the political opportunity structure, that is, the external environment new parties face in their quest for parliamentary representation. Using data collected for 18 Western European countries for the period 1960-2010, the analysis shows that institutional factors are important to understand new party parliamentary entry. The sociological factors analysed in the study, however, do not seem to be of equal importance.

    Patterns of Intra-Party Democracy across the World2017In: Organizing Political Parties: Representation, Participation, and Power / [ed] Susan E. Scarrow, Paul D. Webb and Thomas Poguntke, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2017, p. 158-184Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the widespread recognition of the relevance of intra-party democracy (IPD), there has been a lamentable scarcity of empirical data suitable for large-N cross-sectional comparative analysis. This has changed with the PPDB project. Against this background this chapter sheds some light on questions about whether and how IPD varies systematically by country and party level criteria. The empirical analysis shows that country-level factors are generally more important than party-level factors. Most importantly, the existence of a party law and levels of trust and affluence are associated with higher levels of IPD. However, we also find that smaller parties, in terms of membership size, are associated with higher levels of IPD. While our results must be interpreted with some caution we believe they constitute a first step towards re-framing the scholarly debate on IPD from what is normatively desirable to a discussion about causes and consequences of variations in IPD.

    Do mainstream parties emphasize immigration as a response to the radical right?2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Does the electoral fortune of radical right parties cause mainstream parties to increase their emphasis on immigration during national election campaigns? Several European countries have witnessed an increasing number of refugees and immigrants, as well as electoral successes for radical right parties. Simultaneously, during the last decades the issue of immigration has become a more important issue among voters. In this paper, we investigate the topical question of whether mainstream parties increase their attention on immigration issues as responses to radical right parties (i.e. when radical right party support increases or they are able to get attention on immigration issues in the election campaign). Using a unique dataset on which political issues political parties emphasize during national election campaigns in the period 1988-2010 in seven West European countries, we find that although mainstream parties in general try to downplay immigration issues in national election campaigns, as popular support for radical right parties increase, this does not cause mainstream parties to discuss immigration issues to a much greater extent. However, other parties will further avoid the issue. Our study gives us further insights in topics such as the salience of immigration in national election campaigns and the impact of the radical right on national politics.

    Abstract [en]

    The Reparliamentarization of Sweden? The Use and Relevance of Parliamentary Resolutions to the Government In contrast to the theory of deparliamentarization amongst parliamentary democracies, this article points to the Riksdag’s use of so-called resolutions (tillkännagivanden) to the Government as a sign of growing reparliamentarization. Resolutions in the Swedish context are constitutionally non-binding but politically coercing. From this first study of a hitherto uncharted parliamentary instrument some preliminary conclusions materialise: Resolutions are more complex nowadays than 15–20 years ago requiring more effort from the Government. Parliament’s use of resolutions has, broadly pictured, evolved from unanimous or bipartisan demands on often technical issues to an increasingly politicized tool of reiningin minority governments. In some exceptional cases even issuing a few so-called negative resolutions which essentially seek to infringe the Government’s executive powers. Resolutions may offer a complementary measurement of a government’s parliamentary strength and provide additional insights into the workings of Swedish (and potentially other countries) parliamentarism given additional research.
