The Global Rise of Populism : A public forum and Q&A with academics from the School of Humanities and the School of Social Sciences at the University of Western Australia Other events...
Nigel Farageís Brexit, Donald Trumpís presidency and Pauline Hansonís comeback to Australian politics have all been labelled examples of populism. What was unthinkable a few years ago has become a reality. The revival of nationalism, xenophobia, economic and political isolationism and the mistrust of the elites appealed to many voters disappointed with traditional politics. The media has compared the new realities to the rise of National Socialism in Europe in the 1930s. However, a truly global perspective that includes the rise of populism in non-Western societies has received less attention. If the analogy to the 1930s is right but the scale of the populist phenomenon is bigger, are we heading for a global conflict that is greater than WWII? What can ordinary citizens do? In this public forum and Q&A, scholars from the University of Western Australia will discus the causes, current forms and possible consequences of populism in Australia, France, India, Indonesia, Turkey, the UK and the USA.
