Changing Parameters of the New Right

POLS 512 Changing Parameters of the New Right
The primary purpose of this course is to give the student an understanding of the extreme right-wing phenomenon both in theory and practice. In an era in which some of these parties has made a remarkable progress in Turkey and Western Europe (i.e., Jörg Haider's Freedom Party in Austria), the study of right-wing extremism seems to be relevant for all students of political science and related disciplines. A theoretical framework of the extreme right-wing politics is constructed by the study of other ideologies, that has or is supposed to have influenced the phenomenon. These include conservatism, liberalism, fascism and racism.
