Structural Change and New Cleavages: The Progress Parties in Denmark and Norway

Abstract

The Progress parties have been variously dubbed 'flash party', 'protest party', 'tax-revolt party', 'petty bourgeois protest movement', 'populist party', 'extreme right-wing party'. None of these labels passess unambiguously through a critical examination. More recently, commentators have sometimes referred to the Progress parties as 'conventional' bourgeois parties. Such a label is, however, also problematic, as the social background or class profile of both parties shows an increasing deviation from 'conventional' bourgeois parties. Our approach is that the Progress parties must be interpreted in connection with the new cleavages in postindustrial society. We discuss the Progress parties in relation to cleavages emanating from the welfare state, and in particular to postindustrial materialism and the changed role of the working class.
