This report describes the findings from an online mapping of the populist right and right-wing extremism in Europe. By online mapping is meant a picture of the right according to the web. We describe in some detail what the web is able to tell us about what we phrase right-wing formations online, that is, both the populist right as well as the extremists, in one mapping per country: Austria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Denmark, Norway, France, Spain, Bulgaria and Serbia. Our analysis also includes crossovers, i.e., which groups or other entities are recognized in more than one country. For example, is there a European hub organization? Or are there particular links between right-wing groups across countries? Our ‘maps’ are cluster graphs of websites linked to and from by the right, generated by the Issue Crawler software. The maps are accompanied by descriptions of the qualities of each of the networks as a whole, the individual clusters, and the top nodes per cluster. Which types of networks do the right form, if any? Are the populists linked to the extremists? Are the extremists united, or splintered? Are they national, regional and/or international? Are they fresh, and active, also in social media? Read Less
