    This paper explores how the simultaneous phenomena of globalization and Europeanization have, slowly but surely, affected domestic political cleavages in European countries. Yet mainstream political parties are taking a long time incorporating these new issues in their platforms. Extremist parties have seized on this opportunity in order precisely to distinguish themselves from the mainstream parties. And new forms of collective action have emerged, capitalizing on the popularity of the and globalization movement and stealing the spotlight from traditional parties. Why have globalization and European integration percolated as objects of political debate over the last 20 years? Globalization and European integration have clear economic and cultural implications, but how have they become markets of political allegiance as well? Are they contributing to a redefinition of partisan cleavages in the advanced industrial democracies of Europe? Can we disentangle the economic sources of the new cleavages (e.g., from global economic forces) from institutional sources (e.g., from the EU), and how are the two related? Finally, do these global forces produce the same effects across domestic political contexts of Europe, or do we notice national variations?
