Profiteers of Fear? Right-Wing Populism and the COVID-19 Crisis in Europe

At the beginning of the first pandemic wave, some of our European FES offices ventured on the question of whether right-wing extremist or populist parties could capitalise on the crisis and what effect the pandemic has on political culture.

At the beginning of the first pandemic wave, some of our European FES offices ventured on the question of whether right-wing extremist or populist parties could capitalise on the crisis and what effect the pandemic has on political culture. Country analyses from France, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Greece, Spain, Italy and Romania were produced. Out of these country reports we also compiled an overview analysis.
 
We invite you to attend the online presentation of this project and join our discussion of the main findings with the FES President Martin Schulz. Several authors from the country analyses will also report some of their main results and debate the recent developments in Europe:
