The rise of Right-wing populism in Europe

15 September 2016 18.00

Extreme right-wing parties are gaining support throughout Europe and went from being minor parties in the opposition to being represented in national parliaments and governments. Jobbik in Hungary, Golden Dawn in Greece, the Freedom Party in the Netherlands and Sweden Democrats in Sweden. What is actually going on? Is the electorate moving to the right? Or are these parties changing in order to meet the unsatisfied voters demands?
