Structural Drivers of Extremism in Europe (I.)

The European integration is a great and unparalleled endeavour, but the real life implementation of very positive ideals (freedom of movement) bore side-effects. The domestic extremist “industry” thrives on the structural tension generated by this ever-changing environment. Therefore, the EU must face these challenges and it has to be loud and clear about the importance of dealing with the aforementioned problems on a European level, drawing up European initiatives, policies and programmes. Otherwise the domestic extremism problem of Europe will grow more and more sombre and dangerous. Analysis on the Institute's expert blog, The Unconventional.
