Welcome to our first conference on the Extreme Right, Hate Crime and Political Violence!

Extreme right violence and beliefs remain a challenge for liberal democracies across the globe. Several hundred people have been killed by right-wing extremists in Europe since 1990. Conspiracy theories and ethnic prejudices are widespread. Islamophobia and anti-Semitism are on the rise in most European countries. The contemporary “refugee-crisis” in Europe, transnational activism online, and boosting legitimacy of certain extreme right narratives may reinforce some of these trends.  

This cross-disciplinary conference brings together scholars from political science, criminology, anthropology, history and sociology, psychology and media studies. By combining micro-level studies of relational motives and ideas about legitimacy, meso-level studies of local responses to forced migration and macro-level studies of factors influencing levels of militant activity, we aim to understand the complexity of historical and contemporary right-wing extremism.

Time and place: May 23, 2016 10:15 AM - 11:30 AM, Room 830, Eilert Sundt's building, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Oslo
