In recent years, the movement of Reichsbürger*innen has gained attention within Germany. In international contexts similar movements that attempt to eliminate the current state structures and establish a form of government according to their own ideas can be found. In Canada, there are the so-called Sovereign Citizens and Freeman on the Land.  

The Project

In cooperation with the Canadian Organization for the Prevention of Extremism (OPV), modus|zad looks into movements that do not accept the current state structures. The aim of the first project phase is to get a precise overview of the respective scenes and current developments in the two countries. Hereby it is of importance to include their own perspectives. The collected knowledge will then be summarized in a report.
