  • The Specter of Neo-Nazism and the Collapse of the EU: Reflections on the May 2014 European Elections

    9/30/14
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Charles Beard Room
    Little Building
    80 Boylston St
    Boston, MA 02111
    United States of America
    Charles Beard Room

    Lecture by Dr. Gazmend Kapllani (Scholar Rescue Fund Fellow, Institute for Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies) and Dr. Vincent Raynauld (Asst. Professor, Communication Studies). Moderated by Dr. Maria Koundoura (Professor and Chair, Writing, Literature and Publishing).

    A specter is haunting Europe: EU's break-up. The "Euro crises" is threatening the existence of the European Union itself while the rise of the Extreme Right has brought back the "ghosts of the European past": nationalism, populism, xenophobia, authoritarianism. In the recent European elections (May 2014) parties defined as Extreme Right scored spectacular results – the victory of the French National Front being the most striking example of this "political earthquake". Currently the presence of Extreme Right parties in the European Parliament cannot be considered any more as a marginal phenomenon. Prof. Kapllani will focus on the question: Can the rise of right-wing extremism in Europe call into question the existence of European Union or challenge the legitimacy of the continent's democratic order itself? Professor Raynauld will focus on the role that citizen politicking (populism-inspired outreach tactics, including the use of social media platforms) is playing in the resurgence of the extreme right and their focus issues of religion and immigration.
