Anti-establishment political parties are finding a foothold in more European countries, from Italy to Slovenia. Many of the movements are right-wing and anti-immigration, but candidates opposing European Union policies are finding success across the political spectrum.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson gets the big picture from Jonathan Polk (@jon_polk), associate professor of political science at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, and the Centre for European Research.

This segment aired on June 8, 2018.
