Book Description

This handbook on racist extremism in Central and Eastern Europe is the result of a unique collaborative research project of experts from the ten new and future post-communist EU member states. All chapters are written to a common framework, making it easier to compare individual countries and include sections on:

  • racist extremist organizations (political parties, organizations, and subcultures
  • the domestic and international legal framework
  • members and types of racist extremist incidents
  • state and civic responses to the threat.

Mudde's conclusion examines the region as a whole and compares it with Western Europe.
