Description

Brexit, Trump and the challenges of populism and authoritarianism in 2017: responses from the arts and humanities

Allan Little, the renowned BBC broadcaster and a member of IASH's Advisory Board, will lead this session (which will also be open to the public) convening a panel of academics and thinkers who will probe the contribution of thinking from their disciplines and interdisciplinary fields to understanding better the challenges faced by liberal pluralist democracies and multicultural societies today. How can we best understand how political movements such as populism and nationalism can construct insiders and outsiders, and what might be the consequences for democracy in the future?

Panelists:

This pop-up forum starts at 16:30 and finishes at 18:00. Attendees will be invited to continue discussion over an informal wine reception, finishing at 19:00.
