The fourth chapter takes social movement theory as a mechanism for considering ways in which intersubjective identity interactions deliver a reactive identity politics, manifested most notably in the contemporary West as Far Right and populist politics. In security terms, such processes can also lead to “cumulative extremism” as a major security threat to society. In the British context, the recent rise of the English Defence League (EDL) on the populist right is taken as an indicative example of a dangerously reactive identity politics and narrative.
