The European Far Right: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives

PRIO Report

Charalambous, Giorgos (ed.) (2015) The European Far Right: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives , PRIO Cyprus Centre Report, 2. Cyprus : PRIO Cyprus Centre.

​​​​​This report is a compilation of essays discussing far right parties in Europe, introduced first by a historical perspective that draws on research about the inter-war years and relativises the terms 'extreme' and 'mainstream'. 

​The essays were presented or resulted from participation at a conference organized jointly by the PRIO Cyprus Centre, Friedrich-EbertStiftung, Cyprus and the Cypriot Association of Political Science (CAPS) held in November 2015 in Nicosia, Cyprus. Several far right parties, the factors favouring or inhibiting their impact on society and politics and their associated phenomena are discussed: ELAM in Cyprus, the Golden Dawn in Greece, the French Front National, the Italian Northern League and the space around it, the German AfG and Pegida and the Hungarian Jobbik.
