The Liberal State in Retreat? Globalization, Migration, and the Rise of Global Populism

Tuesday, March 21, 6.30 - 7.45 pm

 

Liberalism in the West is under siege. Brexit, the electoral success of Donald Trump, the increasing strength of the Front National in France, the AfD in Germany, Syriza in Greece, and the Freedom Party in Austria -- the world is witnessing a populist groundswell that has found passionate expression in parties and movements on both sides of the political spectrum. While ideologically eclectic, these parties are united in their distinctly illiberal (indeed often explicitly anti-liberal) agendas. Leftist populist parties remain socially liberal while rejecting a highly integrated neoliberal world order that they argue has not delivered significant benefits to the working classes. Populist parties on the right, on the other hand, blend concerns about economic displacement and rapid social change with their own nationalist, anti-globalization, anti-immigrant, Islamophobic, socially conservative, (white) identity message, and in so doing implicitly reject socially liberal values such as universal human rights, gender equality, and multiculturalism. Join CGA Clinical Assistant Professor Sylvia Maier to discuss the growing support for these parties and what this signals for the future of liberal democracies in Europe and elsewhere.
