The far right in the Balkans

Vera Stojarova

Manchester University Press

The final chapter highlights the common themes which have emerged from the discussion and focus on the issues treated in the introduction. Analysis of the far right parties in Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria and Romania shows that the main factors important for the success of these parties in these countries are: charismatic leadership and strong party organization, the position and strategy of the dominant right/left party, the state-building process, a national minority or diaspora abroad and an electoral system; other factors (such as unemployment or new voter strength) play a supporting role. The international variable might also play a strong role in the (lack of) success of far right parties. The far right party family in the Balkans is in every respect a heterogeneous group. The “softer” radical right variant would encompass VMRO-NP, Ataka and possibly SNS – the only parties to display nationalism purely in terms of internal homogenisation, As opposed to external exclusivity. The “harder” extreme right would include SRS, HSP, SRS CG, BK, VMRO, PRM and PNG-CD – all parties exhibiting nationalism both in terms of external exclusivity and internal homogenisation and so have an anti-system position.
