Far-right extremism is becoming more transnational

Tuesday, December 3, 2019


Far-right violence in Europe.


Far-right violence is a growing threat in Europe, and ideology, recruitment tactics and attacks have become more transnational in recent years. In addition, the 'lone attack' nature of far-right violence and the lack of an established list of far-right terrorist organisations puts obstacles in the way of monitoring and preventing the risks.


  • Demographic trends and forecasts and profound regional inequalities will make far-right politics relevant for many years to come.
  • Political parties with real or perceived links to extremism will continue to be excluded from coalition talks in most countries.
  • The tightening of immigration rules in countries such as France and Germany could make some communities less tolerant of foreigners.
