Handbook of Territorial Politics

Edited by Klaus Detterbeck and Eve Hepburn

The study of territorial politics has enjoyed a renaissance in the last thirty years. Scholars have questioned the state-centric assumptions upon which mainstream social science has been built, pointing to the territorial (re)distribution of power across and within states. This Handbook brings together leading scholars to demonstrate how territory has shaped institutional structures, public policies, elections, political parties, and identity across the world. Offering theoretical, comparative and empirical insights, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the impact of territory on modern political, economic and social life.

Chapter 10: Ethnoregionalist parties

Lieven De Winter, Marga Gomez and Peter Lynch


The chapter first reviews the literature on ethnoregionalist parties. Since the 1970s, several waves of political mobilization have demonstrated the relevance of this party family for territorial politics. The discussion covers the conceptualization and labelling of the ethnoregionalist parties as well as the current state of the art. The analysis of the performance of ethnoregionalist parties looks at the electoral, office and policy success of the party family and their determinants at the regional, national and European level. The chapter also looks at the Euro party organization of ethnoregionalist parties and provides evidence on the position of the party family regarding European integration and its change and continuity over time. The chapter concludes with an assessment of whether there has been a fundamental transformation or a consolidation of political dynamics within the party family over the last decade.
