Conspiracy theories are controversial phenomena in the modern world, around which there are many misconceptions. Accordingly, conspiracy theories are specific to non-democratic regimes. It is common to think that they are often used by the leaders of authoritarian states but conspiracy theories are also used in democracies as a tool to shape or manipulate public opinion.
 
Anton Shekhovtsov’s main area of expertise is the European far right, Russian malign influence in Europe, and illiberal trends in Central and Eastern Europe. He is the author of the Russian language book New Radical Right-Wing Parties in European Democracies (ibidem-Verlag, 2011) and the book Russia and the Western Far Right (Routledge, 2017).
