Home > Debate > Fascism


Latest update : 1 December 2018.

In this section we cover debates on the question of fascism in a different contexts; whether it is useful to look at the growth of far right forces in the global north as a growth of fascism per se, whether fascism is a useful label for reactionary forces in the global south and how that relates to the growth of religious fundamentalism/communalism in those countries. In both contexts there is also the question of what the use of the label fascist means about the specific tactics that the left should use in combating such phenomena.
