Right-wing and racist populism is on the rise. Since the financial crash ten years ago, the far right have gained prominence by attacking the liberal establishment whilst blaming migrants and refugees for the crisis. In the space of just a few years, we have seen the rise of the far right in Austria, Hungary, Poland, France, Germany and Italy. Donald Trump won the US presidency on the back of a campaign where he labelled Mexicans ‘rapists’ and pledged to build a wall on the US / Mexico border.

In the EU referendum in Britain, Nigel Farage drummed up racism towards migrants and refugees we and are now confronted with a far right, Islamophobic street movement in support of Tommy Robinson.

How can the populist right be fought back, and what are the challenges facing the left?
