The CARR Organisation research unit (ORU) is configured as a research seminar concentrating on three research strands: (1) party political organisation, (2) movement organisation, and (3) network organisation. Taken together, these strands circumscribe the universe of organised far-right socio-politics. Among the members of the ORU, a diversity of epistemological and methodological perspectives are represented, including quantitative, qualitative/case-based, and ethnographic methodological focuses. The ORU convenes monthly seminars to provide members the opportunity share research, collaborate on projects, and provide information on upcoming events.
