81950October 17, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — Cas Mudde, Hampton and Esther Boswell Distinguished University Professor of Political Science at DePauw University, will speak at Carleton University in Canada on November 3. Dr. Mudde's 4:30 p.m. address, "Who’s Afraid of the European Radical Right?", will be presented by Carleton's Centre for European Studies.

A synopsis of the event states, "This summer the world was shocked by the horrendous attack in Norway, where an extreme right-wing terrorist killed 77 people, mostly teenagers. In his manifesto, the terrorist referred to a broad range of people and parties, mostly of the 94748European radical right. To many observers the attack was a logical consequence of what they see as dominance of the radical right discourse in European debates on immigration. But how powerful is the European radical right? And how dangerous are they for European democracies?"
