Abstract

Last Sunday's German federal elections marked a significant break in Germany's post-war history. For the first time since the immediate post-war period, a far-right party entered the Bundestag. With 13 of the seats, the populist anti-immigration party, Alternative for Germany (AfD), has become the third largest party in the German parliament. A key to the success of the AfD was its ability to mobilise previous nonvoters to turn out, write Julian Hoerner and Sara Hobolt.
