The Age of Dualization

This chapter is concerned with the relationship between party strategies and the political be-havior of insiders and outsiders in the labor market, concentrating on the risk that outsiders may become politically alienated and marginalized. Taking the case of Sweden as our guide, we argue that labor market outsiders who perceive that they are being ignored by social de-mocratic parties become more likely to exit politics or to support more radical political alter-natives. We combine an analysis of election campaigns in the 1990s and 2000s with an analy-sis of survey data from the Swedish National Election Studies.

Keywords:   insiders, outsiders, economic insecurity, elections, election campaigns, left parties/social democrats, employment protection, employment promotion, electoral/political participation, non-voting, protest voting, political parties/party strategies, unemployment, sweden (social) class
