Global Violent Right-Wing Extremism: Mapping the Threat and Response in the Western Balkans, Turkey, and South Africa

Published by CT MORSE


This paper maps the threat landscape in three local case studies where violent right-wing extremism (VRWE) extremism has proliferated significantly – the Western Balkans region, Turkey, and South Africa. As a threat and response mapping, this paper seeks to explore what the dominant ideological influences and drivers of VRWE are in each location, as well as identifying how these local concerns are connected to the transnational VRWE landscape. These three case studies present significantly different contexts and social and political dynamics, which each in their own way impact the spread of VRWE.
