The Czech Extreme Right: Alternative Europeanism

Antonín Háka

Současná Evropa, 2015, vol. 2015, issue 2, 145-163

Abstract: For centuries, people in Europe realise that Europeanism is a part of their identity. This article focuses on the question of Europeanism and conceptions of european integration of the Czech far right. The results reveal that their attitudes are based either on a completely closed or very closed idea of collective identity. Mass immigration is seen as a threat to both european nations and Europeans. Their stance on EU can be described as a hostile rejection with the emphasis put on the immigration policy which could irredeemably harm the affairs of the nation and race. They offer a completely different and sometimes nebulous form of european integration which is based on refusal of a centralist conception and support of the idea of nation state.
