The Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies presents

Migration, PEGIDA, and the Far Right in Germany

The past few years in Germany have been notable for two developments: a first gradual, then rapid departure from traditional party positions concerning immigration policy and the rise of "right-wing populist" movements with far-right connections. The paper will seek to relate these development to longer-term trends, including the peculiarities of German immigration policy and its narratives of justification, the evolution of German nationalist tendencies in the early 2000s and the cumulation of economic, party-political and European crises.

Andreas Fahrmeir was appointed to the chair in modern history with particular emphasis on the nineteenth century at Frankfurt's Goethe University in 2006. His research interests include the history of citizenship and migration control, European elites, and the history of nationalism.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is required. For futher information, please contact Joseph Hawker
