Far-Right Mobilization and the European Crises : Electoral and Protest politics

Project description

Explaining the rise of right-wing populists

Far-right populists have fared well in recent electoral contests at national and European levels. An estimated one in four Europeans vote populist. What’s behind the far-right upsurge? The EU-funded FARMEC project will investigate whether and how far-right political mobilisation evolved during the financial crisis, the refugee crisis and the security crisis linked to Jihadist terrorism. It will research different national contexts across Europe and arenas of conflict (protest and elections). The findings will shed light on the triggers of far-right mobilisation. The results will be useful for NGOs and publication organisations called on to tackle right-wing extremism and radicalisation.
