Recent years have witnessed the relentless rise of Racially and Ethnically Motivate Violent Extremism (REMVE) across the globe under many forms - from white supremacists to neo-Nazis. Today’s REMVE groups constitute a bewildering diversity of ideologies, objectives, and modus operandi. Yet while many of these groups are new, the roots of the ideologies they espouse and the violence they support and carry out span back decades and even centuries. To understand the current threat posed by REMVE, we must also understand the past histories from which these groups have emerged.

On December 1, 2020, the International Centre for Counter Terrorism – The Hague (ICCT)and the RESOLVE Network are co-hosting an online live briefing, followed by a Q&A session. The briefing will be about far-right trends, past, present, and future, in Part II of RESOLVE’s fifth annual Global Forum Series. Convened virtually, the 2020 Forum brings together leading experts and researchers in a series of thought-provoking fireside conversations on evolving trends and dynamics in the violent extremist landscape.
