Date created :
Since the Brexit referendum, voters in several European countries have expressed their anxiety at the ballot box about immigration, cultural values and security. Professor Cynthia Miller-Idriss analyses how the extreme far right has gained some ground by changing its image. "Having far-right groups who present themselves aesthetically as more mainstream makes a mainstream voter less suspicious", she tells Armen Georgian. "Those ideas then seem more acceptable to voters", Miller-Idriss explains.
