Ten years since the 22 July 2011 attacks in Norway, the right-wing extremism landscape has significantly shifted. This Live Briefing, hosted by ICCT in collaboration with the Center for Research on Extremism (C-REX) at the University of Oslo and the Polarization and Extremism Research Innovation Lab (PERIL) at American University in Washington D.C., will feature a roundtable discussion by leading academic and policy experts on right-wing extremism. The speakers will situate developments in right-wing extremism across organisational variants, the evolution of terrorist attack modus operandi, and challenges in creating intervention approaches. The discussion will consider best practices to effectively counter the growth of right-wing extremism, offering policy recommendations suited for the contemporary threat landscape.
