Webinar series: Researching the Far Right: Methods and Ethics

This webinar series aims to initiate and facilitate a much needed discussion about the methodological, ethical, political, personal, practical and professional issues and challenges that arise when researching far right parties, protest movements, and violent actions. 

The topics addressed in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 are largely inspired by the volume ‘Researching the Far Right: Theory, Method and Practice’ (Routledge, 2020) edited by Stephen Ashe, Joel Busher, Aaron Winter, as well as Graham Macklin from C-REX.
