(p.8) 2 Terminology and conceptualization
The far right in the Balkans

Vera Stojarova

Manchester University Press

The first chapter is devoted to a discussion of terminology and clarifying the conceptualization. The author notes, that the terminology related to the far right party family remains vague and scholars have not been able to agree on common terms. Political parties and organizations of this type are labelled radical right (e.g. Ramet 1998, Minkenberg 2008), extreme right (e.g. Mudde 2000), right wing extremist (Arzheimer-Carter 2006), neo-fascist (Mammone 2009), neo-Nazi (Becker 1993), neo-populist (e.g. Betz and Immerfall 1998), anti-immigrant (e.g. Fennema 1997), ultraright or far right (e.g. Mareš 2003; Kopeček 2007), New Right (Schanovsky 1997) populist (Frölich-Steffen-Rensmann 2005) or right populist (Rechtspopulismus, Hartleb in Backes-Jesse 2006, Urbat 2006). The author then clarifies the reasons for choosing the term far right which is then used for right extremist as well as right radical parties and also the conceptualisation drawn from Cas Mudde work based on four ideological features – nationalism, xenophobia, law and order and welfare chauvinism.
