Live webinar on right-wing extremism (RWE), 15 May 2020


What you need to know about right wing extremism

Join RAN practitioners for a live webinar on right-wing extremism

The right-wing extremist (RWE) scene has undergone many shifts and changes over the past three decades. For instance, it has moved from offline to online. It has also embraced the gaming culture. There has also been a marked increase in cross-border activities and transnational networks.

First-line practitioners, civil society organisations (CSOs) and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are taking centre stage to address these challenges.


During this webinar, we will share insights from the RAN factbook on right-wing extremism, which provides an overview of fundamental elements of RWE movements across the EU, and discuss the related implications for practitioners in their work on prevention of violent extremism.


Nikki Sterkenburg (expert on RWE and author of the factbook) will lead the webinar and Jordy Krasenberg (RAN staff) will moderate.
