Summary/Abstract: The article focuses on the immigration policy of Scandinavian right-wing populist parties. A comparative analysis is made of the official platforms of the Danish Peoples Party, the Progress Party (Norway), the Sweden Democrats and the True Finns, the research aim being to find out what is common and what is special in the programs, and why this is the case. Examining the topic as a whole, it can be concluded that the immigration policies of Nordic right-wing populist parties differ from each other relatively little. The similarity between Scandinavian societies, also in the immigration situation, has also likely been guiding the political parties examined here towards quite similar immigration policy programs.
