Ninth Monitor

The ninth report of the Racism & Extremism Monitor was released in December. The University of Leiden initiated this monitoring project fifteen years ago; the first report was published in 1997. This study has been carried out in collaboration with the Anne Frank House since 2001. While the early monitors focused mainly on racist violence and other manifestations of right-wing extremism, the reports of recent years have covered a broader spectrum. Besides the topics mentioned above, the ninth report also addressed subjects such as antisemitism, discrimination of the Roma, Muslim extremism, the effects of stigmatisation and legal bans against discrimination. Investigations done for this ninth monitor report specific to these fields of study were undertaken by researchers from ten different universities and institutions in the Netherlands.

The Extreme Right: Entry and Exit

Former right-wing extremists can play a useful role in the deradicalisation of members of extreme-right movements. Bringing new members face-to-face with the negative experiences of these individuals seems to be a very convincing approach. These are some of the key findings of the report: In en uit extreemrechts (The Extreme Right: Entry and Exit), which was released on 23 June. This study examined the complex processes of radicalisation and deradicalisation based on interviews with twelve young people who were active in the hard core of the extreme right for an extended period of time

This complete research study and all the earlier monitor reports are available in Dutch (and some in abridged English versions) via this website.
