During the past few years a radical populist right has emerged in a number of West European democracies. Mixing xenophobia with a neoliberal economic program, radical right-wing parties have been increasingly successful at the polls. Their success can be explained partly in terms of a protest against immigration from third world countries and the established political parties and partly as the result of the profound social and cultural transformation of advanced western democracies. Those parties which are most astute in exploiting both issues can expect to do best at the polls.
