Parties and the Challenge of Multi-Level Politics -- Principals, Agents, Parties and the EU -- Denmark: Party Agents on Tight Leashes -- Finland: From Permissive Consensus to Angry Birds? -- Norway: Strong Yet Marginalised Parties -- Sweden: Power to the Parliamentarians? -- Conclusions: Nordic Political Parties, European Union and the Challenge
Political parties are essential for parliamentary democracy, the form of government that prevails in most European states. But how have parties adapted to modern society ₆ not least a new layer of political decision-making in the EU? Should we talk of a crisis of party democracy? This book reports the findings of a comparative survey of parties in four Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland and Sweden, all EU member states; and Norway, which remains outside the Union. Using original data, it explores how power is exercised within party organisations and their respective parliamentary groups. Within an analytical framework that envisages a party as a series of delegation relationships, the book illuminates how leaders are chosen, how election candidates are selected, how manifestos are written - and how a party's various elements are co-ordinated. For all the challenges posed by multi-level governance, parties retain much of their capacity for making democracy work
