Confronting Far-Right Extremism in Europe

The Shirazi Foundation attended an event hosted by the Atlantic Council titled Confronting Far-Right Extremism in Europe.

Experts covered aspects of the ideal condition for the Far-Right Parties rising trend in Europe. Experts also analysed how the far Right parties over the decade have shifted from using openly racist, bigoted rhetoric to promote  traditions that they have recast along national lines.  An expert panel also discussed the threat to non European Muslim immigrants and how they have become scapegoats for the lost of national values and the threat to certain liberal ideals. Experts covered the recent outbreak of violence in Europe and its affect on religious minorities in the west.
