New Policy Brief: The State of Right-Wing Extremism in Europe

We are pleased to announce a new policy briefing on the CES website: The State of Right-Wing Extremism in Europe.

Since the 1980s, a family of political parties, often labeled “Extreme Right” or “Far Right”, has made significant inroads in Western Europe. Common to nearly all of these parties is a strong opposition to immigration (particularly non-European immigration), a willingness to exploit cultural tensions between Muslims and others, and a populist discourse pitting "the people", who they claim to represent, against political elites. There are also significant differences. Some, like the Norwegian Progress Party, started out as anti-tax movements and promoted market liberal economics; others, like the French Front National, tend to adopt an anti-neoliberal stance. Some, such as the Austrian Freedom Party, have neo-Nazi or anti-Semitic histories; others, like the PVV in the Netherlands, are ostensibly motivated by a desire to protect “Enlightenment values”. But regardless of these distinctions, most of these so-called Extreme Right Parties (ERPs) have grown remarkably over the past three decades.

New Book: Irish Governance in Crisis

Irish Governance in CrisisUNC visiting scholar Niamh Hardiman (of University College Dublin) is editor of the new book Irish Governance in Crisis, published by Manchester University Press.

Ireland’s international reputation changed rapidly from global success story to European problem-case. How did this happen? What are the implications for our view of good governance?

This book argues that there is a crisis in the way the Irish state is structured and in the manner in which it relates to the main organised interests in society. Through a set of linked policy studies, it shows how sectional benefits can be prioritised where public interest considerations are weakly articulated and debated. Policy choices may entail unintended perverse consequences that, once embedded, can be difficult to alter. The book traces these weaknesses to the dominance of parties, the permeability of the political system to sectional interests, and the weakness of democratic accountability. A powerful concluding chapter sets out an agenda for future research on institutional design and political reform.

For more information and to purchase the book, please visit the Manchester University Press website.

North Carolina German Studies Seminar

Flag and outline of GermanySunday, April 15, 2012 | 5:00 - 7:00pm | Hyde Hall | Institute for the Arts and Humanities | UNC-Chapel Hill
As part of the North Carolina German Studies Seminar & Workshop Series, Priscilla D. Layne (UNC-Chapel Hill)
will present a seminar entitled Leila Negra and the Struggle for a Black German Identity.

Born in 1930, Marie Nejar is a Black German former actress and singer known by the stage name Leila Negra. During the Third Reich, Nejar narrowly escaped Nazi persecution by acting in propaganda films. Following WWII, she was marketed as a pop singer, performing caricatures of Black femininity that appealed to German desires for exoticism during the economic wonder. Despite facing a lifetime of racial discrimination, Nejar claims to have always regarded the world from the perspective of a white person. This paper offers a close reading of Nejar's autobiography and her song lyrics in order to address interrelating questions about race, gender, performance and identity in postwar Germany and interrogate what might have led to the disconnect between Nejar's self-perception and society's perception of her.

Priscilla Layne is an Assistant Professor of German at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is working on her book, tentatively titled Music, Mimicry and Black Masculinity: Resistance in Postwar German Culture.

Refreshments and drinks will be served after the seminar. Please register with Stephen Milder in a timely fashion.

For more information, please visit www.unc.edu/ncgs/seminars.html.

Sponsored by Carolina Seminars, the Carolina-Duke Ph.D. Program in German Studies, Duke University (Center for European Studies, Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures, Department of History), and UNC-Chapel Hill (Center for European Studies, Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literature, Department of History, Institute for the Arts and Humanities, Program in the Humanities and Human Values).

Without a Fight to Screen at Full Frame Film Festival

Without a FightFriday, April 13 10:20 AM | Cinema 4, Durham Convention Center, 201 Foster Street
Nairobi is home to Kenya’s largest slum. Comprised of thirteen villages that are divided along religious and ethnic lines, Kibera suffers from continual outbreaks of civil unrest. The local soccer league offers a reprieve from the violence and restores respect among participating groups—for the last ten years, in an estimated 20,000 soccer matches, the boys and young men of Kibera have played in the Champions League Soccer Tournament without a fight. This is no small feat in a city where work is scarce, high school is too expensive for many residents, and crime is a prevalent alternative to education. The Champions League is lead by Kenny Juma and a cadre of volunteer coaches who wholeheartedly believe in the ability of soccer to combat the constant cycle of community discord and crime. As the soccer season draws to a close, teams SHOFCO and More Fire face off in the final game. Who will win?
