Abstract [en]

In this paper I propose a definition on what right-wing populism is, by comparing three right-wing populist parties; the Swedish Democrats in Sweden, the Danish Folks Party in Denmark and the Progress Party in Norway. This is also my question formulation. I have used the idea analysis to straighten out the concept of right-wing populism. The purpose of this paper is to make a definition of the concept of right-wing populism, since one seldom speaks of what right-wing populism is but rather only uses it with parties who want to decrease immigration. However is it much more to a right-wing populist party than just the immigration question. 

     I begin by discussing the previous research about populism and right-wing populism to see what conclusions previous researchers have made. The analysis is divided into three parts; one section for every party. Each analysis starts with a brief history about the party and then continues with the three areas I have chosen; how they look upon democracy, the ”people” and the immigrant-question. In my conclusion I compare the three parties with each other and find a definition of right-wing populism. My proposed definition is that a right-wing populist party advocates more direct democracy, want to preserve the culture in its country without involvement of other cultures and wants to decrease the immigration to the country.
