https://mmopage.com/news/oisufzsmxtr Jacob Aasland Ravndal has an interesting piece in the Washington Post laying out some serious obstacles to measuring trends:

Media reporting often resorts to two of the most well-known terrorism databases — the Global Terrorism Database (GTD) and Europol’s annual Terrorism Situation & Trend Report (TE-SAT) — both of which are poorly equipped to capture right-wing terrorism and violence. GTD does not code for the perpetrator’s ideological motivation. Therefore, reports on right-wing attacks based on GTD data, such as the Global Terrorist Index, have to manually browse the data to identify relevant events. In addition, GTD only includes a fraction of right-wing attacks registered in other data sets.

Using these sources, he finds that right-wing violence if anything has declined, especially in Europe.
