With the increasing number of teenage terror convicts, this report takes the first steps to understand the ideologies and behaviours of the young extreme-right. Young people – politicised, active and highly connected – are no longer just passive consumers of online terrorist content by adult groomers but are themselves propaganda creators, group organisers, peer recruiters, extremist financers and terrorist convicts.
Defined by the authors as “youth-on-youth radicalisation”, this report investigates the specific nature and recruitment strategies of ten recent and current racial nationalist youth groups across Western Europe. It explores the youth-centric nature of their ideologies, their use of mainstream and alternative social media platforms for promotion and recruitment, their offline activities and propaganda, and the threat vectors caused by this emerging generation of extreme-right actors.
