The Spectre of Populism: A Threat to Liberal Democracy?

Part of: In Pursuit of Knowledge - Fall

Course description

Western democracies are confronted with the rise of populist parties that are fueled by strong anti-establishment sentiments. In particular right-wing, nationalist forces have gained considerable support with their anti-immigrant agenda and changed the landscape of party politics throughout Europe and North America. What we have witnessed with the surge of right-wing populism is a profound weakening of democratic processes and institutions (constitutional division of power, free press, and independent judiciary). This talk will consider the driving forces behind the electoral success of right-wing populism and the effects it has on liberal democracy.
