A esquerda europeia ante os dilemas da imigração
AbstractIn spite of the thesis about the “end of ideology”, about the “end of history”, or about a certain overcome of the division between left and right, the truth is that these same theses have an ideological dimension and, little time after their formulation, they were followed by the emergence of new ideological forms or by the leading relevance of “old” ideologies. Additionally, several studies have been documenting the growing importance of the voters’ position in the left-right scale as an explicative factor of their vote option. In the present article, we analyse (in time and space) the different perspectives and meanings associated to the division between left and right in Europe, as well as the correlates of the division between left and right in terms of cleavages, speci?cally in terms of the so called “old” and “new politics”, or, to put it differently, in terms of the so called “new” and “old” cleavages. Having in mind the precedent contextualization, the last three sections of the article give an approach to the dilemmas of the European left when facing immigration.
