Project description

Within the context of the project, pupils of the seventh and ninth grade at general schools in the state of Schleswig-Holstein are questioned about right-wing extremism. The aim of the survey is an expanded replication of the studies on right-wing extremism in Schleswig-Holstein (Maresch et al., 2013, Bliesener & Maresch, 2016) carried out in 2013 and 2014. In particular, changes in the frequency of unreported politically motivated crime as well as the perceived threat of politically motivated crime are to be recorded. Furthermore, changes with regard to the occurrence of politically extreme ideas as well as the establishment of contacts to right-wing extremist persons, organisations, leisure activities and events are to be determined in order to be able to derive further indications for future prevention work. In addition, a focus is to be placed on current phenomena, which may account for a significant part of the increase in right-wing extremist offenses or right-wing extremist attitudes. Ultimately, by focusing on the temporal change of relevant phenomena, the study makes it possible to make statements about the need for new recommendations for the prevention of right-wing extremist attitudes and violence.
