Abstract

Sociocultural issues such as immigration have increased in prominence in recent years in Western Europe, with far-right parties gaining traction in the guise of figures such as Marine Le Pen (and her father Jean Marie before her). Here, Kyung Joon Han looks at whether position shifts from these parties hurt them politically, finding that that niche parties that have maintained strong ideologies, put great salience, and competed primarily on a few sociocultural issues, may be well advised to adopt different strategies between values they endorse and those they reject.
