Event description

Description

Cosponsored by the Department of Political Science.

Our age is said to be characterized by the “rise of populism.” What exactly is “populism,” and what is its relation to democracy? What do Trump, Sanders, Le Pen, and Latin American populists have in common, if anything? Jan-Werner Mueller, a leading theorist of democracy, will illuminate the concept of populism and point to ways in which populism has revealed weaknesses and problems in contemporary democracies. He will also suggest how these problems should be addressed—both by politicians and by citizens.

Free and open to the public. Pre-registration requested.
