Mateusz Piskorski

It takes into account the specific period of systemic transformation, to describe the development and role of a non-standard political party on the example of Self Defense. Chapter I consists of a theoretical guide and a voice in a debate on the meaning of such notions as “protest party” and “antisystem party” in typologies of Central European political groupings. It brings a clear differentiation between the two types mentioned above. Chapter II shows the history of Self Defense party from its very beginning to its electoral collapse in Polish parliamentary election 2007. Chapter III is devoted to political marketing instruments used by the party, as well as to the general image of A. Lepper’s party. Additionally it brings some analyses of geographical and sociodemographical factors shaping the party’s support. Chapter IV discusses some programmatic concepts and political concepts revealed as relevant inspiration for the party. Then it analyses the party from the perspectives of two approaches: the material one, and the organizational one. Chapter V focuses on the research of party’s structural / organizational model, showing its characteristics springing from trade-union founding traditions. Chapter VI presents the political role of Self Defense in Polish party system from different perspectives and scientific approaches. In the final part general conclusions are made about some regularities of protest parties and their impact on political markets.
