Professor Nigel Copsey and Dr Matthew Feldman, two of the leading UK experts on both historical and contemporary manifestations of fascism and anti-fascism

Dr Feldman added: “An important development in radical right activism this century – is, without doubt the turn from anti-Semitism toward anti-Muslim politics.

“In the aftermath of mass-casualty terrorist attacks by Islamist militants in the US on 11 September 2001; Madrid on 11 March 2004; and the UK on 7 July 2005, the emergence of a potent anti-Muslim politics has offered a hook for a new generation of radical right activists to hang an extremist agenda.

“One of the things we will be looking at is a quantifiable analysis of far right participation in anti-Muslim attacks.”
