Log-in for full text

A comparison is drawn between the typical far right voter living in the Balkans and his counterpart in Western Europe. The author concludes that their similarity seems to lie in the fact that most are male and young; the only difference is in Romania, where a portion of the PRM electorate is composed of those longing for the old regime. The author also looks at laws focusing on hate speech, activities which promote and incite racial discrimination and other legal issues concerning the parties. The legal framework controlling the banning of parties for reasons to do with hate speech, nationalist propaganda and revisionism is slowly being integrated into the legal systems of the countries analyzed. In practice, however, the law is not enforced. The situation is best (in terms of compatibility and use in practice) is in the EU countries – Romania and Bulgaria.
