Beyond Syriza and Podemos, other radical left parties are threatening to break into the mainstream of European politics

EUROPP – Beyond Syriza and Podemos, other radical left parties are threatening to break into the mainstream of European politics

A closer focus on the strengths and weaknesses of the European radical left shows that Syriza remains exceptional and its success is unlikely to be repeated imminently anywhere else, even if activists draw specific lessons as well as inspiration. Similarly, dramatic ruptures in European politics remain remote possibilities. Nevertheless, the longer-term prospects for the radical left will continue to improve, especially if Syriza’s governing experience offers benefits both to the Greek population and the wider European left alike.
