This multidisciplinary workshop will bring together PGRs and colleagues from Liverpool and across the North West who share an interest in far-right politics and ideologies and/or their legacies, including resistance to them across Europe and beyond.

Keynote speakers are Dr Itay Lotem (Senior Lecturer in French, University of Westminster) and Dr Joe Mulhall (Director of Research, HOPE not Hate). The aim of this scoping workshop is to gather interest and to establish a research network, with the longer-term aim of organizing an international conference and working towards a collaborative funding bid.
