Listen again to ' Europe's Far Right, democracy and the European elections'

Posted on 20/03/2014

On 26 February 2014, the Department of History hosted an event at Senate House, focusing on the recent rise of far right parties and the reasons for citizen discontent such as immigration, unemployment, budgetary policies, and poor economic growth. The session also looked at the nature of the contemporary far right and its various models of organisation, mobilisation, and its international dimensions, along with the role of the mainstream institutions and the media.
