Report Abstract:

Report “Contemporary far-rights. Right radicalism in Europe: ideology, social basis, prospects” was prepared in 2018 by leading European experts within joint global project “European Tolerance Forum”, implemented by several non-governmental expert organizations of the EU, Russia and Ukraine. The project aims to monitor and study xenophobia, radicalism and hate crimes in 10 countries of the continent – in Hungary, Britain, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and  France.

The report on the right European radicalism answers a whole series of questions that are of concern today not only for researchers but also for politicians and common people: what is the social basis of modern right-wing radicalism, what are the objective prerequisites and possible directions for its development, what underlies this ideology, what are the sources financing of right-wing radical organizations, and who are their leaders?

The data was prepared by of researchers from a number of European universities and research centers, who participated in the “European Tolerance Forum” project. They come from Dept. of History at Northampton University, UK, Teesside University, Center for fascist, anti-fascist and post-fascist studies, UK, The French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs (IRIS), Department Chair of Social Research Methodology at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Faculty of Social Science; Pantheon University of Athens, the Berlin Register for documentation of manifestations of right-wing extremism and discrimination in the district of Steglitz-Zehlendorf, Germany, Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement, Jagiellonian University, Dept. of History, Kracow, Center for Monitoring and Comparative Analysis of Intercultural Communications at the Moscow Institute of Psychoanalysis, Institute of the national policy and inter-ethnic relations Studies, Moscow, the Ukrainian Institute of Analysis and Management Policy.
