As in our previous study, we assume that the consequences of globalization are not the same for all members of a national community – or among different national communities. We expect globalization (and European integration) to give rise, in economic, cultural, and political terms, to new disparities, new oppositions, and new forms of competition. We assume that globalization creates new groups of ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ who constitute political potentials – that is, latent groups ready for the articulation of their conflicting interests and demands by political parties, interest groups, and social movements.
Moreover, politicians adjust their party’s ideological position as well as their readiness to enter into government coalitions with certain competitors. Thus, mainstream parties on the right, especially those out of office, once they realize the appeal of the issues raised by the new populist challengers, begin to address them and seek alliances with the new entrants (Bale 2003). The success of new right populist challengers effectively expands the right bloc and allows it to form a government led by the centre-right.
On the one hand, as is observed by Kalmijn and Kraaykamp (2007), there is a shift from an economic to a cultural basis of stratification, worldwide. As countries modernize, cognitive skills and cultural resources become more important for an individual’s place in society. Education thereby becomes a more important source for politically relevant attitudes, not only in the domain of ethnic relations. On the other hand, as we have argued previously and as we shall again demonstrate in this volume, the political actors who mobilize the globalization losers mainly do so in cultural and political, and not in economic, terms.
