ABSTRACT
The article looks at the rise of the anti-immigrant Golden Dawn, or Chrysi Avgi, party in Greece as of 2012. Topics include Greece's history as the European country for refugees from other areas like Bangladesh, Nigeria, and Iraq; how the Greek financial crisis ongoing since 2009 and related austerity measures have increased anti-immigrant sentiments in the country; and the founding of Golden Dawn by Nikolaos Michaloliakos in the mid-1980s. Increased violence against immigrants and the Golden Dawn's particular aversion to Muslims are discussed.
