Summary/Abstract: The article deals with development of unofficial right-wing extremist scene in Slovakia since 1989. This scene is represented by non-registered and loosely organized youth groups with activist (militant) strategies and extremist ideology. The article describes and analyzes the formation and activities of main groups considered as right-wing extremist, e.g. National resistance, Autonomous nationalism, Resistance Action Group or Slovak Recruits and tries to find the organizational, strategic or ideological patterns of their identity and activities. It seems that the most effective organization model in right-wing extremist scene is the cooperation of registered political party or civic movement with unofficial grassroots groups which are able to utilize their activism to get the needed electoral support for their associates with political ambitions.
