Populist Challenges to Democracy

Tuesday, October 23, 2018

5:30 pm

Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University

Sponsored by:
Co-sponsored with the Global Populisms Project, a program of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and The Europe Center at Stanford University

How do populism and nationalism challenge democracy? Can they instead help to sustain it? This panel explores the causes of the global populist upsurge, from popular discontent to economic shocks. Nationalism and populism are powerful, compatible, and resonant ideologies. As a result, they can legitimate leaders and mobilize citizens – and pose dramatic challenges to liberal democracy. 

This is the first of three public symposia during the 2018-19 academic year to be hosted by the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford University.
