What’s Left of Europe If the Far Right Has Its Way? Atlantic Council. Alina Polyakova and Anton Shekhovtsov. March 22, 2016.
Far-right parties are on the rise in Europe, particularly in the post-soviet space. The 2008 financial crisis provided these parties with an electoral boost, and the refugee crisis threatening the continent has inflamed nationalist and xenophobic populism. The author explores the realities and repercussions of the rise of far-right parties in Eastern Europe. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
