Effects of far-right groups on international politics
Far-right groups have been gaining greater traction across the European political spectrum and international fora, with their members often contesting international organisations and their policies. For instance, they have profoundly changed negotiations on the Global Compact for Migration in the United Nations (UN). On the other hand, radical right parties in the European Parliament have failed to bring about any deep policy changes. The EU-funded FARRIO project will study why transnational far-right contestation has varying effects on international organisations. Specifically, it will compare effects of far-right contestation in the EU, the UN and its specialised agencies/treaties in four central policy fields (migration, women’s rights, climate change and public health).
