Extreme Right Parties in Western Europe

This chapter examines the development of right-extremism in Germany. It identifies a third wave of right extremism, which reflects the latent needs of a society emerging from structural/economic and value modification. The emergence of a ‘new axis of conflict,’ representing a non-material agenda ranging from national identity to authoritarianism, from xenophobia to moral traditionalism, has provided a non-ephemeral base on consent for the extreme right. Despite the failure of the extreme right in the electoral arena, it is still present in street level activity, especially in the East.

Keywords:   Germany, right-extremism, political system, political parties, ideology
