Abstract [en]

During the so-called “refugee crisis” in 2015–2016 there was a surge of vigilanteactivities in Europe as well as in North America, taking the form of street patrols,border patrols and militias. Vigilantes claimed they would do what the police andother authorities were either unable or unwilling to: maintaining public safety andsecure streets and borders against alleged threats from illegal refugees or crimeproneminorities. These vigilante activities were usually intimidating rather thandirectly violent, but there were also cases of violence, and even small-scale terroristattacks and pogrom-like events in the name of protecting the locals against allegedcriminals.This “new” vigilantism caused considerable media attention and public concerns.However, such vigilantism directed specifically against migrants and minorities iscertainly not a new phenomenon, having long traditions in many countries. Asscholars in the field, we realized that although there have been some studies ofvigilantism as a global phenomenon, we were not aware of any systematic comparativestudy of vigilantism against migrants and minorities, based on collectingcomparable data of vigilante activities across countries and contexts. Such a studycould enable us to develop typologies of varieties of vigilantism against migrantsand minorities, and explore the circumstances under which these diverse forms ofvigilante activities emerge, flourish or fail.
