The Rise of the Radical Right in Europe and the Case of Hungary: ‘Gypsy crime’ defines national identity?
Katalin Halasz looks at the impact of the profound political, economic and social changes that have swept across Europe. She argues that there is a new wave of racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia that has propped up the extreme and radical right on the margins of politics, but also increasingly in the mainstream. She focuses on the worrying implications of the growing escalation in violence against Roma in South and Central-eastern Europe, and the chilling call for a ‘decisive solution to the Roma problem’ in Hungary, which openly embraces anti-Gypsysm.
