The Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right (CARR) is a UK-based research centre and pedagogical outreach initiative focused on the study and countering of radical right extremism and intersecting phenomena (e.g. populism, gender, antisemitism, and Islamophobia) that aims to support a variety of mainstream groups, from government agencies to grass-roots charities, through podcasts, commentary, research reports, presentations, media interviews and commissioned work.
CARR is the essential one-stop-shop for knowledge and resources on right-wing extremism. We provide a ‘broad church’ and are willing to work with any mainstream group genuinely wishing to understand and counter radical right extremism.
CARR aims to lead the discussion on radical right extremism around the world. To do this, CARR features work by experts on the radical right in Europe, the US and beyond. Senior, Doctoral and Policy and Practitioner Fellows all write Research Insight pieces, blogs, add bibliographic content, contribute vlogs and podcasts; and above all, make themselves available for media commentary, stakeholder consultation and policy formulation. Throughout, CARR’s emphasis is placed upon the public dissemination of specialist insights and research on this resurgent phenomenon.
In pursuance of this, the Centre fosters understanding of the global dynamics of the radical right beyond the Global North, as well as the nature, historicity, and ongoing threat of radical right terrorism in the present moment.
CARR provides scholarly, research and policy advice on local, national and transnational issues relating to right-wing extremism. CARR is the first port of call for scholarly reports, presentations and peer-reviewed research. Our work is especially relevant to formally constituted groups and bodies at the coalface of addressing right-wing extremism, including media and government stakeholders, educators, the security services and the general public.
CARR is the leading site for knowledge and resources on radical right extremism, past and present, and around the world. We are proud to be a ‘broad tent’ politically, working with any mainstream group genuinely wanting to understand and counter radical right extremism. A collective approach to counter extremism is more important today than ever.
