How are European parties resolving inclusion dilemmas?

by CSDP

When do parties include groups that provoke opposition from core voters? And when does the inclusion of new groups cause parties to compromise fundamental ideological commitments? Professor Rafaela Dancygier looks at these questions, highly relevant across diverse democracies, and develops an argument that addresses how parties respond to changing electorates and draws out the implications of these responses for the nature of party politics.

In this Q&A with the Woodrow Wilson School, Professor Dancygier explains the motivation behind her book and some of the key takeaways.

Rafaela Dancygier is Associate Professor of Politics and International Affairs and CSDP Faculty Associate at Princeton University.
