Extremism and its revival in public debate and political movements in Central Europe

This research and education project was focused on understanding the roots of nationalist concepts currently present in political discussions of the four Visegrad countries: the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.

The Budapest Institute was commissioned to prepare a national analysis on the most common manifestations of extremism in Hungary. The analyses, which is a literature concerning the 2003-2014 period, is available below and will appear in an English language booklet published by the Institute for Public Affairs (IVO).

The national analyses are also used by IVO as a background material in discussions about the topic of extremism with high schools students in Slovak regional capitals. The publications and the results of the educational activities will be presented at an international conference in Bratislava in October 2015.
