Arktos Media is a publishing company known for publishing authors of the European New Right, as well as translating European far-right literature into English.[2] Founded in India in 2009 by Swedish businessman Daniel Friberg and John B. Morgan, an American editor, Arktos was launched in 2010, then relocated to Sweden in 2014 and Hungary in 2015. Friberg had previously distributed white power music and Nazi paraphernalia before starting the company. His stated goal was to create a Swedish parallel to American alt-right media.[3]

Friberg is the CEO, while Gregory Lauder-Frost, formerly of the Conservative Monday Club, leads the British division.[4] American professor Jason Jorjani became editor-in-chief in 2016, but later left that position when he began to distance himself from the alt-right.[5]

Arktos publications include translations of the works of Alexander Dugin and Alain de Benoist,[2] and it is now, according to The New Yorker, the world's largest distributor of far-right literature.[6]

The Southern Poverty Law Center has identified Arktos as being a bedfellow of Identity Evropa.[7]
