Abstract

Despite making significant electoral gains over the past decade, the French Rassemblement National remains excluded from power due to its extremist reputation. Examining its showcase town of Hénin-Beaumont, Fred Paxton and Timothy Peace show how the party is using the local level of government to ‘mainstream’ and project a more competent, government-ready image.
