Dr. Julia Morse – The Rise of Global Populism in the Trump Era
A SPARC Speaker Event
SPARC – Sparking Political Action, Response & Change
Starting in the mid-2010s, democracies all over the world have turned toward right populist leaders who stand in stark contrast to those who pushed for international cooperation two decades earlier. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Boris Johnson, and our own Donald Trump exhibit xenophobic, nationalistic traits, a tendency toward authoritarianism, aggressive leadership, and an anti-elitist message.
Why is this happening and how will it affect global relations going forward? Dr. Morse will unpack it for us.
