Abstract:

In what in many respects was a pioneering work, Angus Campbell and Stein Rokkan undertook a comparative investigation of citizen participation in political life in Norway and the United States based on materials available in the 1950?s. One of the principal findings of their inquiry was the extent to which Norwegians appeared to be mobilized into the political arena by a different set of factors than was the case in the US. In particular, political parties, trade unions and other voluntary organizations played a highly significant role in Norway, whereas in the US individual socio-economic characteristics (especially education and occupational status) were much more prominent. These latter factors, which constitute the core of what has been referred to as the standard SES resource model of political participation, were much less significant in Norway.
