Academic Seminar: Cas Mudde on Youth and the Extreme Right

Cas Mudde presents the edited volume "Youth and the Extreme Right" on this first Academic Seminar for Autumn 2016.

Youth and the Extreme Right is a unique collection of academic articles that focuses on the particular relationship between youth and the extreme right. Drawing on insights from a wide variety of academic disciplines, and employing both qualitative and quantitative methods, the book asks three fundamental questions:

  • What attracts youths to the extreme right?
  • What is the importance of prejudice and violence for extreme right youths?
  • What are the best prevention and intervention strategies to deal with extreme right youths?

Cas Mudde is an Assistant Professor in the Department of International Affairs of the University of Georgia, and Adjunct Professor at C-REX. Having worked at universities throughout Europe and the United States, he is a noted scholar of the far right and is regularly consulted by international media, governmental, and nongovernmental.
