Representation of the Extreme Right in the European Parliament, 1999-2014

Sources: compiled by Philippe Copinschi ; European Parliament,


These maps show the escalation of extreme right-wing parties in the European Parliament since 1999. At the beginning of the period, this trend was confined to just a few countries (mostly Austria and Belgium, but also France and Italy) but since 2009 has spread to most EU states. Extreme right-wing parties regularly garner more than 15% of votes (Austria, Poland, the Netherlands and France). However, Spain and Portugal, the Baltic States and Ireland have never elected representatives to the European Parliament in Strasbourg during the period.
