By Elisabeth Gauthier, Joachim Bischoff, and Bernhard Müller
The 2014 European elections clearly showed the reinforced anchorage of the extreme Right throughout Europe. What are the reasons for the rise of right-wing populism and what characterises it as opposed to right-wing extremist parties with openly racist and nationalist orientations? What to do? Calls such as “no pasarán” or the invitation to the constitution of an anti-fascist front, if understandable, show however a great helplessness in face of the rise of modernised right-wing populism. The decisive factor is whether it is possible to develop creative responses with which the consequences of unfettered capitalism can be pushed back.
