The roots of radicalism and anti-Roma attitudes on the far right

This paper seeks to look more closely at the prevalence of anti-gypsy sentiment, which is one of the main pillars of Hungarian far-right movements. It will show which social groups and attitudes connect with the politically increasingly relevant anti-gypsy concept – a concept which, for all that it is extreme, has been widely accepted in Hungary in recent decades. But the success of the Hungarian far right over the past five years may not have its origins solely in this: it is worth examining which social groups and attitudes have helped move the far right from the margins to the mainstream and to a socially more accepted position. In this study, radical and far-right opinions are measured by people’s attitudes towards the Roma and towards foreigners and immigrants; support for radical and far-right political groups is gauged in terms of the number of Jobbik voters. The analysis is based mainly on a 2011 TÁRKI representative survey of Hungary featuring 3,000 respondents.
