Extreme Right-Wing Violence and Terrorism: Transnational Networks and Narratives
In Partnership with the German Mission to the United Nations
The Soufan Center and the German Mission to the United Nations are collaborating on a research project to explore terrorist narratives and financing, including far-right violent extremist dimensions, and the role of the United Nations. Through a combination of webinars and issue briefs, the research will dive into recruitment narratives and propaganda used by violent far-right extremists, and similarities or differences with Salafi-jihadists, as well as transnational networks and financing of violent far-right extremists. The project is intended to inform the deliberations on counterterrorism at the United Nations in 2021, including the review of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and the High-Level Conference on Counterterrorism during the summer.
