For the recent decades, it has been observed that there is an increasing support for populist radical right wing parties, which became apparent especially in European Elections. This thesis examines the rise of populist radical right wing parties in several European countries through taking the 2014 European Elections as its central election example while considering two theoretical explanations; Post-industrial Phenomenon and Master Frame Theory. In order to create a better understanding on this rise, six European countries; Austria, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, Finland and Greece included in this research as example countries. Within these countries, radical right parties of each country; Freedom Party of Austria; Front National; Danish People‟s Party; Party For Freedom; True Finns and Golden Dawn will beanalyzed through their electoral success particularly in the last European Elections of 2014 with a brief comparison to previous European elections and national elections in respective countries. Theoretical classification of these parties will also be taken place in this research in order to prevent a possible conflict due to vast literature on the classification in which there are too much definitions and categorization exists.
