Abstract: The voluminous literature on the far right largely treats it as a national and discursive phenomenon. I examine, instead, local and organizational aspects of right-wing extremism. I focus on the subnational development of right-wing extremist party organizations to turn attention to how local societies respond to extremism. I discuss the societal responses to right-wing extremism in Greece by focusing on the main actors, resources and tactics of the antifascist movement. I explore spatial and temporal patterns of antifascist mobilization and assess its effects on right-wing extremism.
We hope you can join us!
