Far-right extremist groups are spreading hate rhetoric online. The increasing normalisation of populist radical rhetoric poses a security threat to the EU and an existential threat to fundamental European values such as non-discrimination, tolerance, and equality as per Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union. The EU-funded RADICALISATION project will identify radicalisation strategies in online far-right propaganda. Its aim is to contribute to deradicalisation and prevention programmes. The project’s focus on far-right radicalisation strategies is consistent with the policy objectives set out in the European Commission’s document ‘A Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign and Security Policy’.
