MAJOR THEMES COVERED
Topics to be discussed by practitioners and academics will include:
- The relationship between populist racism and violent extremism;
- The latest developments with the BNP, EDL and European far-right movements;
- Analysis of how the mass media represents populist racism;
- State responses to forms of populist racism;
- Factors that create ‘fertile conditions’ for populist racism to develop;
- The role of the new media.
ENCOURAGING NEW APPROACHES
As well as talks from experts, up-and-coming researchers, and professional perspectives, there will be networking opportunities for informal engagement with these themes, to encourage new approaches to tackling populist racism.
