Description In this chapter, we focus on the interactions of party and movement-based organisations in the studied period. Therefore, we seek not only to map empirically the strategies and activities in the organisational field of the radical right,but also to explore the theoretical aspects of their organisational trajectories. Here we draw on the concept of ‘movement parties’ to refer to actors that are in transition from extra-institutional movements to the partisan electoral competition ‘as their primary vehicle to bring societal interests to bear on policy-making’(Kitschelt 2006: 278). Therefore, we also try to assess the processes of change in relation to the shifts of various actors between the field of political protest and electoral politics.
