Should we talk about fascism in Europe today?
Hybrid event
Fascism is once again being talked about as a current threat in Europe. How justified is it to use the term analytically to describe what are otherwise called far right, radical right or nationalist populist parties, movements or governments? Should it not be reserved for the era of Hitler and Mussolini? How significant are continuities from historical fascism through neofascism to some of today’s political parties? What do we gain and what we lose by using the F-word? An expert panel will consider these and other questions, both in historical perspective and looking at the politics of specific European regions.
