Exploring Extremism is a podcast series produced by UNDP’s Oslo Governance Centre. It dives into uncovering and understanding emerging issues in violent extremism. Hosted by journalist Anneliese Mcauliffe, the series shines a light on some underexplored issues related to violent extremism through expert-level discussions. In this first series over four episodes, we will focus on a separate topic each time, from the rise of the far right in Europe to the role of mercenaries in extremist organisations.

It’s been 10 years since the far-right extremist Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people in Norway in twin attacks: a car bomb in the government quarter of Oslo followed by a horrific attack on a youth summer camp at Utøya Island which left 69 people dead, many of them children and teenagers. A decade on, today we’re looking at the far right in Norway: reflecting on ten years after Utøya, how have far right groups changed, and what is being done to contain them?
