The Rise of Populism - A Threat to Europe?
Nigel Farage, the ex-leader of UKIP and a chief Brexit campaigner, has addressed a rally of Germany's far-right AfD party in Berlin. He received a standing ovation as a model of right-wing political accomplishment.
French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen's round one victory was spared the public outrage that met her father's push through to the runoff in 2002. The National Front has gone mainstream.
Donald Trump's astonishing ascent in the US presidential race has been welcomed - and closely followed - by Europe's radical right. The Republican candidate is providing important lessons for their own campaigns.
