For the Well-Being of the People: Far-Right Populism in the Discourse of the Party New Slovenia

The paper explores how populism functions in combination with Christian Democratic ideology in the case of the political party New Slovenia (Nova Slovenija). We analyze party’s discourse and thereby focus on the questions on what arguments, ideas and ideologies it is based, how the party frames social problems and solutions, and how the party enforces discrimination of minority groups. The analysis includes interviews with the representatives of the party and texts the party published on its webpages. As a research method, we use critical frame analysis and discourse analysis. Forms of action against minorities, reproductions of antagonisms between the people and “others” and nativist understanding of the state and citizenship show partly overlaping of actions and discourse of New Slovenia with radical right populism.
