A polarized society

Europe’s extreme right-wing reflexes

16 November 2011
19:00
Upper Stage
The “Us and Them – Us as Them” cycle's  wide-ranging discussions focus on both the Greek and international dimension of immigration.
Free entrance
What factors have contributed to the steady rise of the extreme Right in Europe? How have extreme positions and ideas marginalized in post-war Europe found their way back to the centre stage of the continent’s public life? What has removed the stigma from the language of intolerance, and how has this language fed into the social polarization of Europe?

The “Us and Them – Us as Them” cycle is about immigration, a burning issue throughout Europe. The cycle’s wide-ranging discussions will focus on both the Greek and international dimension of immigration.
