In this first systematic inquiry into the political ecology of the
far right in the twenty-first century, we have investigated what the
main parties have said, written and done on climate and energy in
thirteen European countries: Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany,
Poland, Hungary, the Netherlands, Austria, France, Spain, Italy and the
United Kingdom. We focus on Europe, but also look at two countries in
the Americas – the United States and Brazil – that have long been
recognised for their outsized impact on the climate system and that are
both, at the time of this writing, ruled by presidents on the far-right
end of the spectrum.
The Zetkin Collective is a group of scholars, activists and students
working on the political ecology of the far right. It was formed around
the Human Ecology division at Lund University in the summer of 2018.
Conducting research in their native languages, the contributing authors
to the book are: Irma Allen, Anna Bartfai, Bernadette Barth, Lise
Benoist, Julia Bittencourt Costa Moreira, Dounia Boukaouit, Clàudia
Custodio, Philipa Olivia Dige, Ilaria di Meo, George Edwards, Morten
