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.
