"The Radical Right in Central and Eastern Europe"
Andreas Umland, The Catholic University of Eichstaett-Ingolstadt
Steffen Kailitz, Hannah Arendt Institute for the Study of Totalitarianism
This panel will analyse the varieties of radical right-wing parties and movements in contemporary Central and Eastern Europe, as well as various determinants of their rise. In particular, it will evaluate the sources and nature of various anti-democratic ideologies as well as the social context within which groupings representing these ideologies act. It will focus on both established parties functioning within national political systems and extra-parliamentary movements and think-tanks active in the sociocultural realms. Although the panel welcomes rigorous national case-studies, it encourages speakers to present comparative studies and papers that contribute to the debate on theoretical and methodological approaches to the analysis of the radical right in the region.
