Electoral evolution and ideological developments of the European Communist parties in the 20th century: From post-WWII period to the post-Soviet era.

Nikos Marantzidis

The end of the WWII signaled the electoral rise of the communist parties in Europe. From a marginal situation they rose abruptly as key players in the political scene of several European countries immediately after WWII. This was due to a number of factors, among them the Soviet Union’s contribution in the struggle against Nazism. Until the 80s the western European communists had an important role in the European political life. Since the late 70s and early ’80s the European CPs showed clear signs of decline. The above decline was related to a number of political, cultural, sociological and International factors. 

After, the fall of Berlin’s wall and the dissolution of the USSR the European communist parties followed different ideological directions. The lecture will present the variety of these directions, as well as the rise of a new family in the European political scene during the last decades: the radical-left parties.

Nikos Marantzidis is professor of Political Science in the University of Macedonia (Thessaloniki, Greece) and visiting professor in Charles University at Prague. This academic year (2019-2020) he has taught in the Department of Political Science the University of Kerala (India). His main academic interests are relating with the Greek and European communist parties and the European communist history.

The lecture is organized in partnership with a project «Public Diplomacy. EU and Russia».
