Abstract [en]

It is often suggested that political parties are becoming increasingly alike, and that party politics has turned into an elite affair where political professionals collude to further their self-interest rather than work to represent the interests of their constituents. In recent decades this diagnosis has been famously associated with Richard Katz and Peter Mair’s cartel party theory. Yet so far this controversial thesis has not been subjected to systematic empirical scrutiny, nor has its conceptual and normative underpinnings been properly considered. In this volume a group of political scientists with different specialisations take on this task, focusing empirically on the Swedish party system, which the originators of the cartel party theory have suggested is especially conducive to the formation of party cartels. Collecting new and unique qualitative and quantitative data, the volume casts serious doubt on the validity of the cartel party theory as an explanation for party system change.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this volume is to assess the cartel party theory based on a study of the Swedish party system, specifically, the party groups in the unicameral Swedish Parliament (the Riksdag). Attending to a range of factors, we ask whether or not the party groups in the Riksdag have increasingly come to resemble one another in the period from the late twentieth century to the first decade of the twenty-first century. In this chapter of introduction, we present the Swedish case as well as six empirical studies of the Swedish case highlight various factors that the cartel party theory takes to be conducive to cartelisa­tion, and discuss countervailing forces as well. We explore whether party elites are becoming increasingly alike and increasingly removed from grassroots and constituents due to processes of professionali­zation; whether opposition to government is waning in the wake of globali­sation and Europeanisation; and whether parties are becoming more alike by adapting to general processes of mediatisation in politics. In two chapters, we investigate key factors not yet sufficiently acknowledged either by authors or critics of the cartel party theory: gender representation and party culture; we ask whether these factors act as countervailing forces to cartelisation. In a concluding chapter we discuss how the empirical results presented here might lead us to rethink accepted ideas about cartelisation, convergence and increasing similarities among parliamentary parties.

Abstract [en]

As a general statement about party development, the cartel party theory has severe problems. What is assumed to be the most devastating effect of cartelisation on representative democracy is the alleged erosion of the links between voters and parties, ‘which are based on trust, accountability, and above all, representation’ (Mair 1997: 153). Our findings in this volume do not support such claims.

Abstract [en]

This study investigates whether the socialcomposition of Swedish party groups and the pre-parliamentary politicalexperience of members of the Riksdag have become more homogeneous, dueto the increasing professionalisation of party politics. According to the masspartyideal, political parties are open to all members. The rise and spreadof state-financed party funding enables cartel parties to employ increasingnumbers of professional politicians. As a result, the norm ofself-selection is increasingly being replaced by the norm of employment, thatis, of being recruited, hired and paid by an employer. Compared with selfselection,it is presumably more common for a person hired to be similar tothe person responsible for recruiting/hiring. However,Hagevi’s findings do not support the contention that increasing party subsidiesfrom the state are related to a more socially homogenous parliament, withrecruitment of parliamentary members from the growing extra-parliamentarypool of professional politicians becoming more dominant.

Abstract [en]

This is study about religion, xenophobic opinion, and support for Radical Right Populist Parties during their phase of initial mobilization in Sweden. It deals with two issues of investigation. First, are the opinions of regular church attenders xenophobic or non-xenophobic? Second, are the opinions of people who live in municipalities with a relatively high proportion of churchgoers more or less xenophobic? The main data of this study are the Swedish National Election Study of 2002, but the article also presents data on the characteristics of the Swedish municipalities. The findings show that church attendance is associated with non-xenophobic opinions such as support for refugee entries and for transforming Sweden into a multi-cultural society. While regular attendance in the Church of Sweden does not show any correlation with xenophobia, people attending Evangelical free churches show strong non-xenophobic opinions. Indeed, people living in municipalities with a marked presence of Evangelical free churchgoers show more non-xenophobic opinions than individuals in other municipalities. Along with individual effects, this indicates contextual religious effects on xenophobic opinion. Both individual and contextual religious effects tend to decrease xenophobic opinion.
