This chapter is a comprehensive literature review of the 'drivers' of far-right extremism. It offers a brief historical analysis, explores 'micro', 'meso' and 'macro' dimensions of far-right radicalisation, as well as the role of gender and youth. The chapter focuses on the current reconfiguration of far right extremism in Europe, in particular its relationship with broader social, cultural and political processes.
