In my research, I would like to find out the extent of modern fascist movements in two particular countries even if this phenomenon can be witnessed around the globe. Those two countries are Germany and Russia. I selected those two not only because of my knowledge of their respective official language, which can help in my research, but also because they are the most relevant areas for a research about the state of fascism today. Nazi movements in Germany have never really disappeared. They lost popularity since World War II but since the reunification, anti-immigration and ultranationalist parties in Germany gained support and neo-nazi demonstrations can be seen on a more frequent basis. As for Russia, this country is known for its centuries old antisemitism and its weak traditions for democracy. My research will also take into account that not every anti-semitic movement are fascist and not every fascist movement are anti-semitic. This research will focus on far right nationalist movements and not on anarchist and communist groups that have authoritarian and anti-semitic ideologies.

The rise of 21st century fascism seems to be a taboo subject in the media, in which far-right ultranationalist movements are always portrayed as small marginal groups that cannot have a real impact or influence on the "globalization-embracing" majority.

I was wondering if neo-fascist groups in different countries actually communicate or are linked with each other or if an ultranationalist ideology opposes such transnational cooperation. Is there an international neo-fascist network?

Good luck in your research.
