Cas Mudde: lecture for secondary students

Battling the Extreme Right

In this talk, in the context of Orwell Day, political scientist Cas Muddle dissects the present-day rise of right-wing extremist movements, offering keys to confronting them.

Nowadays, the extreme right is gaining ground in all areas of our society. From parliaments to political parties, from networks to media outlets, their discourses are perilously penetrating into public opinion, hiding behind the banner of freedom of speech and setting up against “do-goodism” or “political correctness”. The dangers of immigration, hate towards feminist movements and gender and sexual diversity, or scepticism towards democracy, are just some of the toxic messages they propagate, always focussing on vulnerable collectives and shaking the foundations of social harmony our communities thrive in. Why are these movements being so warmly received? How can we counter their arguments and deactivate the harmful effects of their discourses?
