Eurokritiikin aallonharjalla

This report presents the research findings for the Finnish case study for Nurturing populism ? The impact of the media on the growth of populist right-wing parties in Netherlands, France and Finland, a collaborative project coordinated by Counterpoint.

In Eurokritiikin aallonharjalla: Media, vaalit ja suomalaisen populismin nousu 2007–2011, Erkka Railo, from the Centre for Parliamentary Studies at the University of Turku, Finland, examines the political news published in three Finnish newspapers – Helsingin Sanomat, Aamulehti and Ilta-Sanomat – during the months leading up to four elections: the 2007 national parliamentary elections; the 2008 municipal elections; the 2009 European Parliament elections and the 2011 national parliamentary elections. This period is particularly interesting as it marks the rise in support for The Finns Party. The main research question of this study is whether the way in which political issues were covered by the Finnish media may have influenced some voters’ decisions to switch parties.

The report is currently only available in Finnish.
