Rise of Europe's far-right youth
    Social media, economic woes fuel political shift

    WORLD  19 June 2024 - 06:15

    In a recent article by Politico, the rise of right-wing sentiment among Europe's youth, epitomized by events such as the controversial video on Sylt Island, underscores a notable shift in political attitudes.

    The success of parties like Alternative for Germany (AfD) and National Rally in the European Parliament elections has alarmed traditional political powers.

    This surge among young voters towards the far right is perplexing, given the historical left-leaning tendencies of their predecessors. Factors contributing to this shift include economic challenges, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, and lingering concerns from the 2015 migration crisis. Additionally, the pervasive influence of social media platforms like X and TikTok has provided a fertile ground for the dissemination of far-right ideologies, often unchecked.

    In countries such as France and Germany, where youth support for parties like National Rally and AfD has notably increased, political dynamics are being reshaped. Leaders like Marine Le Pen and Jordan Bardella capitalize on social media platforms to appeal directly to younger demographics, exploiting discontent with establishment politics and emphasizing anti-immigration rhetoric.

    Despite economic indicators showing stability, grievances over issues such as immigration persist among right-wing voters. The upcoming elections in France and potential leadership changes in Germany could further solidify the influence of far-right ideologies in European politics, signaling a long-term impact on the region's political landscape.

    Overall, the emergence of this "foreigners out" generation reflects broader societal shifts and challenges traditional notions of political allegiance among Europe's youth.
