Alternative for Sweden (AfS) : A content analysis on the similarities between Fascism and AfS' policies (English)
Abstract [en]

Right-wing nationalist parties are growing throughout the world. The French Front National, Hungarian Jobbik, Austrian FPÖ, Danish Folkeparti (People Party), Swedish Sverigedemokraterna (Sweden Democrats), and other nationalist parties set their stake in the ground and claim a new political agenda that is either populist or extreme and Fascist. A fledgling of Sweden Democrats is Alternativ för Sverige (Alternative for Sweden – AfS). The party aspires to enter the Swedish Parliament, and it disseminates opinions that seem to go in line with Fascist ideology. To get a better understanding of this newborn and growing political party, this study compared AfS’ ideology, as expressed through their policies, with the fascism ideology by carrying out a content analysis. The results showed that AfS’ policy is rather similar to Fascism, in terms of being ultra-nationalistic, elitistic, spiritualistic, corporativistic, and authoritarian. AfS diverged from the Fascism ideology on a few minor points only, primarily by accepting private ownership and state-independent enterprises. However, AfS may be hiding an agenda that is entirely Fascist.
