Abstract [en]

The aim of this study has been to investigate and describe what strategies the Social

Democratic party used in the Swedish parliament when faced with a new dimension in

politics, namely a green dimension that was disconnected from the traditional left-right wing

spectrum that had dominated Swedish political life for decades. The theoretical background

to this study was from Bonnie Meguids research on mainstream parties and niche parties. The

research question that was posed was: Within a green dimension, what strategies did the

Social Democrats use against the Swedish Green Party during the years 1987 to 1992? The

method used in this paper was a deductive method using a quantitative content analysis. A

code scheme was constructed with the purpose of coding policy positions in bills,

communiqués and parliamentary motions. The analysis of the results showed that the

conclusions that could be drawn were that the social democrats employed different tactics at

different times. In the beginning before the green party entered parliament, the social

democrats used a mostly dismissive tactic along side an adversarial tactic, and a minor

converging tactic. When the Green Party entered parliament, they used a more adversarial

tactic along side a dismissive tactic but also started changing their rhetoric to sound more like

green party. During the parliament year of 1991/1992, they again used a bit more converging

tactics alongside the mainly adversarial and dismissive strategies.
