The nature of the violent threat from the extreme right in Western democracies remains poorly documented and understood. For example, we often do not know whether to categorize attacks from the extreme right as “terrorism”, or as less premeditated forms of violence, often categorized as racist violence, violent extremism, or hate crime. We therefore need more knowledge about the operational and tactical behavior of contemporary right-wing perpetrators. Paper proposals should address actors, their modus operandi, and the conditions shaping it. Comparisons with previous actors and trends, other countries or regions, or other forms of political violence are appreciated.
