In this project, we set out to examine what possible consequences the far-right populist movement could have for democracy as we know it. The populist movement has gained an overwhelming support at the European political scene the past years, and many scholars are rising a question of concern. Some of the populist and the far-right parties are in some cases accused of breathing life back into the Nazi and fascist movements of the 1930’s. Thru a case study with Hungary as the main element of analysis, we wish to examine as to what extend you can compare some of the initiatives made by the prime minister Viktor Orbán to the initiatives made in the 1930’s by Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler. Our aim is to carry out this study through a comprehensive literature study. We will introduce both contemporary literature as well as literature of older date. Furthermore, we will include and compare quotes of Orbán, Hitler and Mussolini as a subject for analysis. At the end of this study, we are positive that we will be able to answer with reasonable certainty, the question of whether there are comparable trends between today’s populism and the 1930’s Nazism/fascism and to what extend it is a threat to democracy.
