For the first time after World War II, a radical right party is represented in the German federal parliament. In this regard, the Federal Republic has finally ‘caught up’ with other European countries who have witnessed the ongoing success of radical right pariahs. The presentation will analyze the ideology of the AfD in this context and reflect on the causes and consequences of its electoral success.
