    All in an effort to portray the spate from the 1990s-on as "normal"...

    Default Two commentaries

    A lengthy comment on European relations on the 'southern front line', alas only about Morocco and Tunisia.

    The second is shorter by Peter Meumnann, of ICSR @ Kings College, has a broader remit 'ICSR Insight – ISIS And Terrorism In Europe: What Next?'.

    A PhD thesis available for free: 'Right-Wing Terrorism and Violence in Western Europe: A Comparative Analysis' and the Abstract says:
    Using new and unique events data, this thesis examines the evolution of right-wing terrorism and violence in post-WWII Western Europe. Notably, the thesis shows that that the number of deadly events has declined in Western Europe under conditions commonly assumed to stimulate right-wing violence, such as increased immigration and growing support for radical right parties. It also shows that some countries have experienced considerably more right-wing violence than others between 1990 and 2015. To explain this variation, the thesis identifies two explanatory models. In Northern Europe, right-wing violence has been most extensive in countries characterized by high immigration combined with low support for anti-immigration parties and public repression of radical right actors and opinions. In Southern Europe, right-wing violence has been most extensive in countries characterized by authoritarian legacies combined with socio-economic hardship and extensive left-wing terrorism. Finally, the thesis offers an in-depth study of the Nordic countries aimed at explaining why right-wing terrorism and militancy have been more widespread in Sweden than in Denmark, Finland, and Norway.
