Extreme Right Parties in Western Europe

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the extreme right in Belgium. Both the Walloon and Flemish extreme right parties advocate a strong state with a harsher penal code, ‘law and order’ enforcement, restoration of traditional moral values and sex roles, and radical opposition to the political system and established parties. However, these parties maintain different views on the issue of ethnic nationalism, and both refuse to be labelled as ‘fascist.’

Keywords:   Belgium, fascism, extreme right, political parties, nationalism, Walloon, Flemish
