The Rise of Right-Wing Parties in Polarised Europe

At one point, particularly the years following World War II, it seemed like Europe had defeated the Far-Right. But now, right-wing populist parties are marching into the mainstream again. Marine Le Pen in France and Catholic-Conservative party Vox in Spain are incredibly popular, Georgia Meloni, the current Prime Minister of Italy is the country’s most far-right Prime Minister since the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.  

So, how did the far-right go from the fringes into the mainstream? And how has this contributed to polarisation? We speak to Associate Professor Dr Fernando Casal Bertoa, School of Politics and International Relations, University of Nottingham UK.
