  • In recent years Europe has experienced an unexpected rise in the power and influence of the far-right. At the same time, some of the traditionally most important left-wing parties experienced their demise. To shed a light on the interconnectedness of these two processes, transform! europe offers this eDossier.

     

    This text brings together different essays and articles previously published by regional portal Bilten.org supported by Belgrade office of Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, offering a unique and valuable overview of The New Right and the Old Left in South-East Europe. Although written in specific contexts during the last four years, these articles provide a deeper, analytic understanding of broader political developments, so none of them lost its relevance.
