My contribution will focus on how political parties adapt their policies to what they perceive is the policy demand among their targeted voters and other parties they want to collaborate with. One example is how the Moderates now, in contrast to their history, emphasize problems related to free movement instead of arguing for the positive value of it; another how the Sweden Democrats have abandoned their policy that Sweden should leave the EU.
