Förändring eller Kontinuitet - SD:s plats i den svenska politiken

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

Sammanfattning: Is the rise of Sverigedemokraterna (SD) something new in Swedish politics, or is it just a modern incarnation of an old phenomenon? Sverigedemokraterna have sometimes been portrayed as a foreign entity in Swedish politics. It’s claimed it came out of nowhere and it’s policies are seen as something that no true democratic, lagom, Swede could ever agree to. And yet, they are the third largest party in the Riksdag. If you take a closer look at Swedish political history, the ideas and ideals of SD are not so special after all. Through an idealtype analysis and an overview of post-WWII Swedish politics I set out to prove not only that the SD have had a predecessor in the Riksdag in the form of Ny Demokrati but also that their ideals stretch back decades. I will show that SD did not come from nowhere, but owe the existence to developments that have taken place over decades. Even though the success of the party might be unprecedented in the Swedish context, we should not be surprised at all over their existence. In fact we should ask ourselves why did it take the radikal right such a long time to blossom in Sweden?
