Abstract: Over the years there has been an effort to try and identify the components and the core ideas representing the extreme right. Many essays have been written on the subject and all of them tried to approach it from a different perspective. Still no –one has been able to provide with a concrete definition of the extreme right and this is because it would be unprofessional and selfish to imply that one has clearly understood the full spectrum of this ideology that appeared many years ago and still is evolving. As a result, one common ground of the experts on this matter is that one should not try to find a definition of the extreme right simply by using stereotypes and misleading ideas, but on the other hand, a more safe and scientific approach would be to try to define and examine the expressions of the extreme right in specific circumstances over the years and places. For this reason, in the first part of our dissertation we will try to offer an approach and a definition of the extreme right according to all the possible criteria that have been used over the years. Consequently, there will be a presentation of the electorate results and cultural facts that led to the emergence, or not, of the extreme right in the countries of East and South East Europe. After having presented the electoral results in the various countries, we should try to examine the reasons of success or failure of the extreme right to reach the preference of the electorate bodies and gain a position in the government bodies and coalitions. Finally, in the end we would conclude a comparative approach between the structure and the presence of the extreme right in Western and Eastern Europe, and try to identify the similarities or radical oppositions of the same party movement but in two completely different geopolitical areas.
