The upcoming European elections see the populist right aiming at Brussels with an explicitly anti-EU agenda; Fidez in Hungary, Lega in Italy, Rassemblement National in France, the AFD in Germany and the FPO in Austria have all campaigned on nationalist demands in a climate of continuous propaganda, made up of references to the homeland and the creation of enemies for purposes of national identity. An approach which has been built on exploiting or circumventing mainstream media, working widely at a local level and focusing on the weak responses of traditional politics to the Eurozone crisis.

The speakers will evaluate this transnational scenario, seeking to identify characteristics and contiguity between the various movements. Moderated by Leonardo Bianchi.
