Regionalist Parties in Western Europe : Dimensions of Success (Hardcover) (Oscar Mazzoleni)
About this item
Regionalist parties matter. Over the past 40 years they have played an ever larger role in European politics, able to monopolise the centre-periphery agenda and push for federalisation and independence while at the same time contributing to the formation of coalitions giving expression to different policy preferences and shaping the political agenda. This volume provides a detailed overview and explanation of the success of regionalist parties in Western Europe. Utilising the in-depth knowledge of country experts, it covers regionalist parties in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, and Switzerland. Each contributor explores the key factors common to regionalist success comparing the evolution and effect of regionalist parties in formally unitary and federal states. The book describes and explains the different types of electoral, office and policy successes regionalist parties in Western Europe have enjoyed, enhancing our understanding of their unique nature.
