Abstract

A number of rallies calling for greater restrictions on immigration have been held in Germany by the ‘Pegida’ movement (Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West). Julian M Hoerner writes on the link between the movement and the anti-euro Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party, led by Bernd Lucke. He argues that with the AfD appearing to be broadly supportive of Pegida, an alliance between the two groups could reshape the right of the German party system.
