The economic crisis in Europe has seen a surge of support for far right groups in many European countries. Should we take the threat of these groups seriously or are they marginal players on the European political scene? Matthew Goodwin teaches and researches in the School of Politics and International Relations at Nottingham University and he has specialised in the growth of far right movements in this country and in Europe. He will look at the range of far right groups that have developed in Europe and their likely impact on European politics during a time of economic depression.
