This project serves to explore the effects which globalization has had on the increased support of the Danish People’s Party since the conception of the party in the beginning of the 1990s. The subject is approached through an in depth examination and discussion of the discourse of DF on the basis of the party’s political programs and speeches. Furthermore, the subject is unfolded and supplemented by analysis of the political agenda of the Danish voters through the utilization of public opinion polls. The research proposes an increased emphasis on themes of globalization within the discourse of DF, while simultaneously detecting an increased importance in the political agenda of the Danish voters on specific issues concerning globalization, such as immigration, multicultural and multiethnic societies. As a result, it can be concluded that a level of importance of globalization has contributed to the rising support of DF.
