While the literature on populist radical right parties (PRRPs) has focused on PRRPs on the fringes of the party system, little is known about the grassroots activism of PRRPs that have already entered the political mainstream and become key players in national politics. Using two paradigmatic cases, the Italian League and the Swiss People’s Party (SVP), Adrian Favero and Mattia Zulianello have investigated when, how and why these parties resort to activism on the local level. The findings of the study will be presented by Adrian.
Adrian Favero is Assistant Professor in European Politics & Society at the University of Groningen. His research explores themes of European integration, party organization, and intra-EU migration.
