In the Tracks of Breivik

Far Right Networks in Northern and Eastern Europe

Edited by: Mats Deland, Michael Minkenberg, Christin Mays

In mid-July 2011, the "lone wolf terrorist" Anders Behring Breivik placed a bomb at the Norwegian government block, killing eight people. He then traveled to a youth camp on a small island in the Oslo archipelago, where another 69 people, mainly teenage social democratic activists, were shot in cold blood. Far right terrorism aligns its actions against the backdrop of ideological evolution and transnational networks that spread their messages in concerted ways. In the Tracks of Breivik addresses the far right by providing both cross-national and country-specific perspectives of transnational networks and dimensions.
