Austrian voters, by contrast, rejected the far-right candidate Norbert Hofer. But it was still startling that his Freedom Party – whose first leader was a former Nazi minister and SS member – received 46 percent of the national vote. The one common factor present everywhere, however, is immigration.One way to test this theory is to note that countries without large-scale immigration, like Japan, have not seen the same rise of right-wing populism. The backlash against immigration is rooted in fact. In the last three or four decades, Western societies have seen large influxes of people from different lands and cultures.The rise is even sharper in most European countries, home to 76 million international migrants, coming mostly from Africa and the Middle East recently. Austria, for example, took in almost 100,000 immigrants last year – adding 1 percent to its population in 2015 alone.Western societies will have to better manage immigration.
