Abstract

Populist radical right parties place selective emphasis on immigration or minority issues, generally garnering support on the basis of their exclusionary agenda. However, populist radical right parties are not single-issue organisations and strenuously endeavour to come across as credible actors in different policy areas. It has been observed that, especially since the outbreak of the EU crisis, populist radical right parties have called new attention to socioeconomic issues. The article concentrates on one case in particular and tries to understand how these issues are framed by Jobbik – the populist radical right party of Hungary. Whilst the article ascertains a 'social' orientation in the ideology of the party, it also contributes to refine our understanding of the (inward and outward) secondary character of socioeconomic issues in the agenda of these parties.
