It looks at the different ideological tendencies within the spectrum and provides a scan of the landscape of the most important far-right extremist groups, networks and channels.

About our countering far-right extremism workshops
Racism, hate and extremism are important issues facing young people today.
Young people are routinely targeted online by far-right extremist groups, networks and individuals promoting hateful and violent ideas, narratives and conspiracy theories.
Research shows that the adoption of extremist views is a gradual process, which is best responded to early. People within the community who are in regular contact with the individual are ideally placed to notice changes in a person’s behaviour and to intervene early.
All Together Now’s interactive programs are designed to provide participants with a nuanced understanding of far-right extremism in an Australian context and guidance on how to respond to young people in the early stages of engagement with right-wing extremism.
All our programs and interventions are informed by the observation that far-right extremism produces different forms of hate and violence that are both deep-rooted and intersectional.
