Diffuse, but Dangerous
The Radical Right in Poland

Reinhold Vetter

Deutsche Fassung


In Poland, there are no clear boundaries between right-wing radical groups or national-conservative and fundamentalist Catholic parties and milieus. In matters of content and organisation, the cross connections are diverse. This encumbers political confrontation with the radical right. Unlike the party Jobbik in Hungary, these groups are hardly ready to compete in elections and to participate in parliament. The political establishment is largely unaware of the danger that right-wing groups pose.
