A growing stream of comparative research focuses not only on the reasons for the rise of the radical right in Central and Eastern Europe but also on the consequences of their success. This panel therefore comprises of empirical articles studying the radical right’s impact along two dimensions. First, the impact radical right parties have on the agenda-setting of the established parties. Second, the policy effects that might take place because of radical right party success. Potential policy areas where RRP effects can be studied are minority protection; women’s rights, LGBT rights, European Integration, as well as asylum and refugees. The panel would like to receive contributions that study these questions using an empirical and comparative research design. Both large-N as well as small-N studies are welcome.
