Author

Project
The use of violence by youngsters in regard to right-wing extremist groups in Flanders
Abstract
Framed within the emotionally loaded history, contemporary right-wing extremism still has to contend with its association with the cruelty of the Nazistic regime. The attack by Anders Behring Breivik was yet another confirmation of that previously created image. Through the years Flemish right-wing parties on the edge of the political spectrum had to compete against these assaults. Within this contribution we will focus on three categories of Flemish right-wing extremist groups, namely political parties, social movements and social and cultural groups (networks) and explain their presence in society and the relationship to violence. This contribution will also investigate which (social) psychological characteristics are related to members of right-wing extremist groups.
