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 a steering committee with Heléne Lööw, Oula Silvennoinen, Nicola Karcher, Claus Bundgård Christensen and Markus Lundström. NORFAS coordinators are Nicola Karcher and Oula Silvennoinen.

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.
