Political extremismWe are used to experiencing political violence from a distance as an expression of social interaction far-removed from Nordic traditions. However, in recent years, political extremism is increasingly reflected also in the Nordic countries - most recently and worst in the tragedy in Norway in the summer of 2011. This issue of Analys Norden discusses this development and the consequences it can have for the open Nordic societies.
