Right wing extremism in Australia: Current threats and trends in a diverse and diffuse threatscape

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

The Australian extreme right currently represents an energetic and diverse threat to the safety and security of the Australian public. The extreme right wing (XRW) generally has been described as a “moving target… it is every changing and evolving whilst being studied”. However, it appears that the online environment, ideological idiosyncratisation, and the decreasing age of individuals associated with the Australian extreme right have augmented that challenge further. This evolution has no linear dimension or direction, and is seemingly able to maintain momentum despite the best efforts of counter terrorism authorities.
