Publication about right-wing extremism in Slovakia published in German language

The Institute for Public Affairs in cooperation with Hanns Seidel Foundation released  publication about the right-wing extremism and ultra-nationalism in Slovakia in German language – Heutiger Rechtsextremismus und Ultranationalismus in der Slowakei: Stand, Trends, Unterstützung

Authors of the publication Grigorij Mesežnikov and Oľga Gyárfášová analyze the current socio-political context, Slovak right-wing extremist and ultra-nationalist scene. The publication contains a chapter about People's Party Our Slovakia (ĽSNS) (election results, party profile, personal background, current activities), a description of socio-demographic structure of its electorate, with incentives and sources of support. The authors also focus on a demand for right-wing extremism, on a political and public debate about right-wing extremism, radical nationalism and fascism after the 2016 parliamentary election and on a public opinion representing a fertile ground for right-wing extremism.

The publication is an analytical assessment of the situation, when the results of the 2016 parliamentary election have changed an overall configuration of the party system in Slovakia. One of the signs of this change was election of anti-establishment political force to the National Council of the Slovak Republic, a party whose activities and profile deny basic principles of liberal democracy. It is needed to analyze a rise of this party and expansion of its electorate as factors affecting political development and public discourse in the country.
