Transformations de l'UMP
A Merger of the Right
Transformations of the UMP
When the UMP was created in 2002 after the shock of April 21st, many were sceptical about its lasting power. Yet in the space of a decade, this refoundation in the form of a merger was to transform the right in France. The new party's organisation, underpinned by the electoral calendar, deploys deep professionalization and exploits marketing tools.
These transformations, which borrow from the model of the firm, have not led to the disappearance of partisan cultures and ideologies. On the contrary; the right-wing community is still very much alive and the UMP constitutes its melting pot, advocating a traditional social order based on a hierarchy of genres and generations and providing a pulpit for popular opinion.
'Sarkozysm' has permitted the partisan right in France to operate an ideological radicalisation which can be explained as much by the national strategies adopted in response to the FN as by the existence of certain local political cultures close to the far-right universe.
This book adopts a sociological, historical and European approach to the phenomenon of partisanship applied to the right in France.
