Special issue on Gender and Far right

New special issue of the journal Politics, Religion & Ideology, co-edited by Katrine Fangen and Inger Skjelsbæk.

“For this special issue, we have carefully selected contributions that highlight several major changes in studies of gender and the far right. […] Their overview shows that while there is increasing concern about far-right terrorist attacks and violence in the global North, most of the policy literature where gender concerns are explicitly addressed has focused on Muslim terrorist and extremist threats, along with the gendered possibilities for addressing this issue. Far-right concerns have remained marginal: indeed, the gender analyses and prescriptions presented in these policy documents may end up exacerbating the situation they are attempting to prevent.”
