Abstract:

Party research has been slow to address one key aspect of contemporary party politics in Western Europe, namely changes in its competitive structure. This is a question of both format – what are the dimensions structuring party competition? – and substance - what are the policy issues parties compete about? The aim of this paper is to push this debate further by suggesting a theoretical framework for understanding the realtion between format and sunstance of West European party competition. The starting point for this framework is the continuing dominance of the left-right structure; in other words, a considerable stability in the format of West European party competition. Thus the key theoretical challenge is to explain why some issues are politicized within a stable format, while others are not. The key element in this alternative approach is the incentives for politicization which different issues offer for mainstream opposition parties. The approach is illustrated empirically by data on the development of party competition in Denmark over the past decade.
