Event description
We are deligted to invite you to an important and timely discussion on national populism and the European Parliament Elections

About this Event

In recent times, national populism has been on the march in much of the Western world. 2016 was a year of political earthquakes, with the UK voting to leave the European Union and Donald Trump being elected as the 45th President of the United States. In 2017, the National Front’s Marine Le Pen won over one-third of the vote in the final run-off of the French Presidential Election. This was followed by the Alternative für Germany (AfD) establishing itself as the largest opposition party in the German Federal Parliament, and the formation of coalition governments in Austria and Italy involving right-wing populist political parties.

The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to an important and timely discussion on the social, political, cultural and economic drivers of national populism, and the impact these factors may have on the upcoming European Parliament Elections.

SPEAKER:

Professor Matthew Goodwin

Professor of Politics, the University of Kent

CHAIR:

Dr. Rakib Ehsan

Research Fellow at Centre on Radicalisation and Terrorism, The Henry Jackson Society
