Abstract
This research project focuses on the topic of participation in extreme-right movements with the aim to obtain an understanding of the underlying mechanisms and processes leading to engagement. International and national examples such as the case of Anders Behring Breivik, the NSU, Hans Van Temsche and the BBET have indicated the damage right-wing extremist may cause to life and property. Although official instances recognize that extreme-right groups are present in Flanders, the phenomenon of extreme-right participation has not received much attention within Flemish criminological research. Therefore, this research supports on a multi-method approach to explain and interpret extreme-right group participation. In the first quantitative study we build on an integrative framework to study moral support for right-wing extremism and the effective use of political violence. In the second qualitative study, 23 interviews were conducted with (former) members of extreme-right groups (cf. life story technique of Atkinson, 1998).
