OQSPS Red-Green Correlations in Danish Party Ideologies

#1
Abstract
By using data collected from candidates from the danish municipal election in 2017 and creating two indexes; one for the traditional “left-right” scale and one for a new “green” scale, we see that the two follow eachother very closely and are almost interchangeable. The “reddest” parties are indeed also the “greenest”.
In a danish context therefore we can conclude that green is the new red.

Key words: left-right scale, socialism, liberalism, green movement

Introduction
This article looks into the relationship between the “red” and the “green” political ideologies. By creating indexes that measure the two I look at how closely they are related in a danish context.
Is the green ideology a separate independent movement or does it actually belong as a subset to the older “left-right” ideologies that traditionally have been mostly concerned with questions of redistribution of wealth?

Conclusion
By creating an index to measure the postition of danish parties on the traditional “left-right” scale and a new index to measure the parties position on a “green” scale we see that these follow eachother very closely. In a danish context there does not seem to be a difference between red and green parties. They are in fact the same. Green is the new red.
