Picture description

The conference aims to bring together distinguished scholars and younger researchers from cultural studies, history, literature, linguistics, political science and sociology. In organising this international conference we seek to contribute to the further development of an international network of scholars working on Irish studies and to promote the publication of outputs such as co-edited books or special issues of international journals. For those speakers interested in such a publication, information will be given by the Organizing Committee during the conference.

The conference will feature keynote speeches from internationally-renowned scholars

Movement parties of the far right: The organization and strategies of nativist collective actors

Andrea Pirro, Pietro Castelli Gattinara
Despite theoretical commonalities, very little empirical research has focused on far-right “movement parties” as collective actors operating both in the protest and the electoral arenas. The article redresses this inconsistency by exploring the organizational and strategic configuration of two far-right collective actors—the Hungarian Jobbik and the Italian CasaPound.
