Abstract

The chapter is focused on a comparative analysis of the electoral campaigns of political parties belonging to Identity and Democracy in the 2019 EU Elections. The aim of the research is to identify elements of a transnational dimension within the political group’s campaign. The results show that each political party maintains its own communication strategy, and the attempt to create a campaign more focused on the group than on individual parties seems not to have become real. However, all the campaigns analyzed referring to a common ideological programmatic platform that aims to create a front in opposition to the supranational European élite and to preserve national interests and peculiarities. ID parties’ campaigns present several similarities: the issues most covered; the constant appeal to the people which characterizes the populist dimension of the group; the negative representation of EU; the central role of immigration issues which define the type of right-wing populist narratives. The interaction between some of the leaders and the relevant use of the web seem to be traits of an interesting transnational trends of ID group.
