Pan-Nordic and Transnational Dimensions of Nordic Right-Wing Extremism 2020–2022

In this project, a research team from Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden explores how the right-wing extremist environment in the Nordic region is connected. The project focuses on Nordic right-wing extremism from a historical perspective, the cohesion and threat of contemporary right-wing extremism, and strategies and efforts to prevent right-wing extremism. The project will contribute new knowledge about transnational right-wing extremism to the research community and provide insights that can improve decision-making on how right-wing extremism can be prevented.
