Interactive map on right-wing populism in Europe

Ahead of the European Parliament elections, we have worked with the Telegraph to produce an interactive map exploring right-wing populism in Europe.

The Telegraph writes:

“As the 2014 European elections draw near, far-Right parties such as France’s Front National are planning a new political bloc that could have a lasting impact on the continent. Some parties, like Golden Dawn, are too extreme to join. Others, like Ukip, are reluctant to be associated with the radical right. Hover over the countries to explore the parties shaping Europe’s new politics.”
