Comparative far-right protest in Europe: the CFP dataset

The CFP dataset seeks to ascertain whether, when, and how the far right engages in contentious politics. The unit of analysis are protest events promoted by far-right political actors.

Data collection is ongoing and the first version of the dataset is expected to be completed in 2023.
