Populism in Europe and Beyond (Panel)


Date: Dec 02, 2013

With populist political movements gaining ground in an economically and socially embattled Europe, this roundtable discussion of distinguished speakers will tackle key themes including the causes and consequences of the contemporary revival of politics of populism in Europe and their resemblances with 20th century movements, most notably in Latin America, populism’s impact on democratic institutions and bedrock principles of legitimate political rule (including the rule of law, distributive justice, equality, and basic rights and freedoms), the xenophobic grievances fueling (and being fueled by) contemporary populist movements, and the role of quasi-authoritarian leadership in populist politics. The event will take the form of a conversation, with very short opening statements by each speaker.

Panelists:
Andrew Arato, Professor of Political and Social Theory, New School
Turku Isiksel, Assistant Professor of Political Science, Columbia University
Andreas Kalyvas, Associate Professor of Political Science, New School
Jan-Werner Mueller, Professor of Politics, Princeton University
Maria Paula Saffon Sanin, Doctoral candidate, Political Science, Columbia University
Nadia Urbinati, Professor of Political Science, Columbia University
