Right-Wing Terrorism in Europe

The level of the threat of right-wing extremist violence and right-wing terrorism assess many European security agencies as extraordinarily high. The Dutch domestic intelligence service AIVD called 2019 “the year” of right-wing terrorist attacks worldwide. Data obtained by terrorism researchers from various sources come to long-term comparisons and show that Germany, along with Sweden (ranked ahead of the U.S., the U.K., Spain and Greece), topped the list of countries with the highest number of right-wing terrorist attacks for the period 1990 to 2015. Further evidence of the level of threat posed by right-wing terrorism is the number of suspects arrested; according to EUROPOL, the main locations of arrests of right-wing extremists or right-wing terrorists were Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and the Czech Republic.
