This paper investigates the exploitation of the far right online, to recruit and inspire transnational online communities.
Far-right extremists inspire each other in transnational online communities. Each new attack serves as a motivation to do the same or even more. Despite these networks being decentralized, international links are maintained, particularly between the U.S. and Europe. The most common way these connections occur is via open and closed online groups and forums, where far-right ideologies are propagated. The online space also serves as a platform for recruitment. Asylum seekers and ethnic minorities are often the primary targets. The presented paper offers an explanation of the problem and suggests possible solutions.
