Abstract

In the last year, the Covid-19 pandemic has overshadowed other political issues in European politics. The high salience of the topic forces populist radical right parties and movement organizations to take a stance. The papers in this panel focus on changes of far-right discourse, providing fresh insights in how they strategically adopt to the new circumstances and to what extent they link their pandemic-related rhetoric to their ideological core features. In doing so, the papers contribute with novel perspectives on far-right politics during the global pandemic.
