New studies on extremist and paramilitary organizations in Central European countries

This research project was focused on activities of right-wing extremist groups that tend towards violence and paramilitary organizations. It has been conducted by the analytical centers in V4 countries and Austria.

Five research centers have participated on the project: Political Capital Institute from Hungary (project coordinator), Institute of Public Affairs from Poland, European Values Think-Tank from Czech Republic, Institute for Public Affairs from Slovakia and Documentation Centre of Austrian Resistance from Austria.

Project results can be found in five country case-studies that map extremist scene and the Russian influence and impact on the far-right groups. The studies were presented on the final conference in Budapest on 27 April 2017. Authors of the study paper about Slovakia are Grigorij Mesežnikov and Radovan Bránik.
