European integration and mainstreaming of stateless, nationalist and regionalist Parties: the Scottish National Party and Frisian National Party

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Since the 1960s and 1970s, stateless nationalist and regionalist parties (SNRP) in many Western European countries have increasingly challenged the existing power structures of the central state and have demanded a redistribution of power to the sub-state level. While on a statewide level these parties often represent a relatively small proportion of the electorate, as their appeal is restricted to a specific territory, within “their” territorial unit they have in many cases become important political actors (Elias 2009a; Elias and Tronconi 2011a; Hepburn 2009; Mitchell et al. 2012; Elias and Tronconi 2011b).
