Show Summary Details


Chapter 5 deals with the action repertoire of the extreme right within a cross-country, cross-time, and cross-group perspective. On the basis of a protest event analysis, the chapter presents the main characteristics of the (violent and non-violent) protests of the extreme right as reported in the press, looking at their forms, scale, targets, and issues, as well as at the presence of counter-mobilization. It illustrates the radicalization leading to violence, taking into account the issue fields around which violent and non-violent mobilization occurs, the types of actors who initiate the events, their targets and their victims.

Keywords: protest event analysis; action strategies; violence; target; time; counter-mobilization
