Description

This panel examines how European integration and the EU are contested in radical right party agendas and strategies. It compares insights about similarities and differences in radical right parties positions on the principle and future of European integration,. It is discussed critically whether a sovereignty-based perspective justified on ethnocultural grounds is sufficient to define a coherence agenda and strategy of opposition for the far-right in Europe o whether re-nationalisation will inevitably result in fragmentation and issue competition between far-right parties.
