CEP Webinar: The Transnational Nexus of Violence-Oriented Right-Wing Extremism, Terrorism, and Organized Crime

More news about the topic

Existing studies on the extremism/terrorism-crime nexus in recent years have focused on Islamist extremism and terrorism, while the transnational nexus between right-wing extremism/terrorism and organized crime groups remains under-researched. This gap in knowledge can lead to a misunderstanding of the strategies of right-wing extremists as well as of the risks those actors pose to potential victims and society as a whole.

A new CEP study, commissioned by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, shows that several violence-oriented right-wing extremist individuals and groups in Europe and the U.S. engage in or maintain ties with organized crime.

The study aims at informing policymakers working on the prevention and countering of violent extremism or terrorism and organized crime with the goal of fostering a better understanding of the phenomena and encouraging further cooperation between relevant government agencies and civil society organizations.

The outcomes of the study will be presented in a webinar on March 29, 2023 (9:30 a.m. ET / 15:30 CET to 11:00 am ET / 17:00 CET)
