Cancelled – Right Wing Extremism In Europe: The Case of Germany – 27 March 2020

In light of recent developments related to COVID-19, including the recently announced US travel ban for many European countries affected by corona, including The Netherlands, the lecture on ‘Right-Wing Extremism in Europe’, originally scheduled for Friday 27 March, is hereby cancelled. We are exploring alternative dates and will keep you updated if a new date has been found but given the rapidly-changing developments it is likely that the lecture will not take place in the coming one to two months.

About Arie Kruglanski and Professor David Webber

Arie Kruglanski and David Webber have conducted extensive empirical research on violent extremism, and they will share their insights on the question of why individuals feel attracted to, join, stay in or leave violent (extremist)movements and how this may be counteracted. Specifically, they will present the findings of their latest book: Radicals’ Journey: German Neo Nazis Voyage to the Edge and Back. The authors delve deeply into the motivations of German Neo-Nazis that prompt their initial membership in these groups, the elements that make membership appealing, and the factors that ultimately cause members to leave.
