This chapter starts by exploring the growth of Far-Right populism, accompanied by increasing racism, ‘Islamophobia, hate speech and hate crime. What is Far Right populism really about? What are its theoretical roots? And how does Far Right populism impact upon communities, in practice? The Far Right has been providing socially divisive explanations for contemporary problems, exacerbating people’s fears and resentments in challenging times. Popular education and participatory action research have valuable contributions to make, in response, working with communities and social movements to unpack the underlying causes of their problems. working towards more hopeful futures - as part of wider strategies for social justice at local, national and international levels. Subsequent chapters are introduced, in summary, in the final section of this chapter.
