European and American Extreme Right Groups and the Internet

Abstract: 

We commonly look at the Internet as a crucial modern tool for the development of a "global village", diffusion of information, communication and equality among citizens, global thinking and universalism.  It has further raised hopes about its effects on democracy in societies, and in particular on the role of civil society and its organizations.  However, it is also evident that the Internet has a dark side, which is not widely explored.
