The Network for Nordic Fascism Studies (NORFAS) was founded in early 2018 and consists of researchers from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. NORFAS is headed by Mattias Gardell and is coordinated by Nicola Karcher and Markus Lundström.

NORFAS studies changes and continuities in fascist thought, practices, and culture during fascism’s hundred years of presence in the Nordic countries. We aim to produce new critical knowledge on fascism’s formation, transformation, recurrent appeal, and how it challenges Nordic societies by studying its entangled history in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.
