Alexander Häusler (social scientist)
Alexander Häusler (* 1963 ) is a German social scientist . He works as a research assistant in the research focus right-wing extremism / neo-Nazism at the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences . Häusler deals mainly with Islamophobia and right-wing populism and is co-editor of the scientific series Edition right-wing extremism at Springer VS .
Häusler is a graduate social scientist. He was a research assistant at the Department of Social Sciences / Department of Political Science (today Institute for Comparative Educational Research and Social Sciences - Political Science, Educational Policy and Political Education ) at the University of Cologne . Already in Cologne he dealt with right-wing extremism , so he led a project group on the subject.
He then switched to the neo-Nazism department at the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences , which is now known as the Research Focus Right-Wing Extremism / Neo-Nazism . Häusler researches and publishes there mainly on the topics of right-wing populism and autonomous nationalists . In addition, he focuses on research on the extreme right in Germany and Europe, as well as conflict and integration research .
He has published academic books and articles in the field since the 2000s. Häusler also published in scientific journals such as in the research journal Social Movements and in the Journal of History . In addition, since 2011 he and Fabian Virchow , head of research, have been the publisher of the social and political science series Edition Right-Wing Extremism published by Springer VS (formerly VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften ) .
Public appearances and journalistic activities
Häusler applies to national media (including Handelsblatt Online , WirtschaftsWoche Online ), public broadcasters (including Bayerischer Rundfunk , tagesschau.de , WDR-Studio Düsseldorf , Deutschlandfunk and Deutschlandradio Kultur ) and state educational institutions such as the Federal Agency for Civic Education and the State Centers for Political Affairs Education as an expert in the field of right-wing extremism and right-wing populism and topics such as Autonomous Nationalists , Identitarian Movement , Alternative for Germany , Vigils for Peace , Pegida and Pro-Movement . Among other things, he published on the NPD ban proceedings and right-wing populism in the opinion and debate magazine The European and, together with Fabian Virchow, on the Norwegian right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik on Zeit Online . For the Atlas of Globalization by Le Monde diplomatique , he wrote an article on right-wing extremism in Europe and for the right-wing extremism dossier of the Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb) an essay on hostility towards Muslims . Häusler's contributions can also be found in specific media of the political left, such as in the science magazine Forum Wissenschaft and in the specialist journal Sozialismus , in the institute 's journal DISS-Journal and in anti-fascist papers including Lotta , Antifaschistisches Infoblatt and Der Rechts Rand, as well as in brochures from regional alliances and initiatives against Right-wing extremism and for intercultural dialogue . For example, he is co-author of the lexicon of Netz gegen Nazis , the Internet portal of the Amadeu Antonio Foundation . In these networks, the texts focus on right-wing populist parties, ideologies and fields of action.
Häusler represents the working group of the Ruhr area cities against right-wing extremist tendencies among young people on the advisory board of the information and documentation center for anti-racism work in North Rhine-Westphalia. Educational institutions such as the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung repeatedly invited him to lectures and panel discussions.
Häusler initially dealt with discourses on the political right and identified “German identity ” as an essential topic . To date, right-wing extremists have used national myths such as that of Hermann the Cheruscan as a “ cipher for national identity constructions”. However, conservative politicians and the media also used individual positively reinterpreted components. Häusler sees a direct connection between national pride and the main culture debate. The asylum debate of the 1990s was an icebreaker for riots in Rostock-Lichtenhagen and elsewhere because it created a clear image of the enemy .
Just like Florian Hartleb , Häusler was able to point out similarities between right-wing extremism and right-wing populism. Like Richard Stöss , he argues that right-wing populism is a “stylistic device of modernization” of the extreme right. Together with Christoph Butterwegge , Häusler recognizes an “interrelationship between the center and the periphery” and therefore does not speak of the extremism of the center , but of the “erosion of the political center”.
Häusler states that criticism of Islam has been gaining more and more popularity in Europe since the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 . He sees the dispute over the construction of minarets and mosques in particular as an issue that is also being exploited by right-wing populist parties. Populists would use cultural racist vocabulary. Central is the warning against the supposed “ Islamization of Europe”. For the political right, campaigns with such references have become a “propagandistic recipe for success”. He names the NPD , the Republicans , Pro Köln and Pro NRW .
He dealt intensively with right-wing parties . Häusler paid particular attention to the pro-movement , in which he identifies a network from the middle of society to the far right. In his assessment, similar to that of Christoph Butterwegge and Gudrun Hentges , the associations are both right-wing extremist and right-wing populist at the same time. The classification made by Häusler that citizens in anger are racist was criticized by Florian Hartleb, as this party credibly distances itself from extremism. His most recent, very extensive research relates to the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party. In 2014 he examined their importance for the “right fringe” and identified a large number of content-related overlaps with and personnel changes in the AfD from associations such as the NPD or “Die Freiheit”, the fraternity “Ring of Freedom Students”, the “Ring of Liberal Youth “Or the German Defense League. The “base of the AfD” is clearly positioned to the right of the line given at the federal level. In the meantime (2015) he sees the "right-wing populist gap" in the party system of the FRG that has existed up to now closed.
Häusler's anthology right-wing populism as “citizens' movement” campaigns against Islam and mosque construction and communal counter-strategies (2008), published by VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften, “takes a closer look at the pro-movement for the first time” and places it “in the populism discussion”, so the sociologist Christoph Busch from the Ministry of the Interior in North Rhine-Westphalia . Furthermore, the "anthology offers a good handout for political education and a first working basis for political science."
Political scientist and extremism researcher Armin Pfahl-Traughber reviewed the anthology Autonome Nationalisten (2011) , also published by VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften, with Jan Schedler : “[He] contains an abundance of essays on a current in right-wing extremism that are active , Habit, clothing oriented towards the left-wing extremist autonomists. The individual authors provide important information on this relatively new phenomenon, but limit their findings by refusing to make comparative considerations. "The political scientist Robert Chr. Van Ooyen stated :" From a theoretical perspective, the editors distance themselves from a concept of extremism. [...] Although the meaning and limits of the term extremism will remain controversial, with this volume Schedler and Häusler present the first comprehensive scientific inventory that, beyond this dispute, is worth reading, especially with regard to its wealth of information and the different access to information of the authors involved. "
The Göttingen social and political scientist Samuel Salzborn judges the joint study The right “courage” citizens. Origin, development, personnel & positions of the 'Alternative für Deutschland' (2015) as “a well-readable and well-informed book”, which “provides information about the personal, organizational and ideological dimensions of the AfD”. He goes on to say that “that the AfD is one of the most important institutions of a 'cultural struggle from the right' [...] [...] is unquestionably true and convincing in the volume, despite the criticism of the use of the term populism [which seems to be trivializing] and documented with a wealth of material. ”For Armin Pfahl-Traughber , the work, which is based on preliminary studies, sometimes seems fragmentary. On the one hand, it offers a wealth of information, but on the other hand it neglects democratic-theoretical evaluations, in particular the descriptions of party history, personnel and individual political positions require closer examination. Overall, however, the work is stimulating enough for the reader to deal with the party in more detail.
