The world is witnessing an upsurge in the radical right and ultranationalist political movements. Thousands of groups span the globe, ranging from white supremacist and neo-fascist gangs to ethnic nationalists and religious fundamentalists. As we saw in the January 6 siege of the US Congress, they have ties to powerful political figures and can influence the course of national politics. In this globalized world, international ties among these groups are growing -- digitally, ideologically, financially -- but their networks are poorly understood and there is little investigative journalism in this area.
In this GIJN webinar, we bring together four senior journalists who have investigated the extremist far-right in different parts of the world. They will offer tips and tools on how to track and report on violent organizations and individuals in different contexts - and on safety.
Will Carless covers extremism and emerging issues nationwide for USA Today. He was previously an investigative reporter at Reveal and has worked as a foreign correspondent in Asia and South America.
Michael Colborne is a journalist who has written extensively about the radical right. His current work focuses on the far-right in central and eastern Europe, with a special interest in transnational radical right extremism. He has written in detail about the far-right in Ukraine.
Vinod K Jose is the executive editor of the independent, watchdog media outlet The Caravan, India's only narrative journalism magazine.
Jane Lytvynenko is a senior reporter at BuzzFeed News, where she investigates online disinformation. Her work focuses on analyzing the spread of fake news and the rise of conspiracy theories and global extremism through online platforms using digital tools.
