The term Alt-Right refers to a set of ideologies and ideological movements described as alternatives to the establishment right. The term began in 2008, and reached its highest prominence from 2015-2017, largely in connection to the rise of Donald Trump, the 2016 Presidential election, and the 2017 Unite the Right event in Charlottesville, Virginia. Since 2018, almost no one has described themselves as Alt-Right.

A related term is Alt-Light, referring to a subset of the Alt-Right and/or ideologies and ideological movements not part of but related to the Alt-Right, being somewhat less controversial but still not part of the establishment right.
