ECIPE Seminar: Ideas, interests, inequality – what is driving the support for economic nationalism?

September 19 2017
Venue: ECIPE Office, Avenue des Arts 40, 6th floor, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Andreas Freytag, Shada Islam, Juliane Schmidt
Time: 10:00

The seminar will assess the roots and economic effects of rising populism and discuss possible answers.

The election of Donald Trump is not the only manifestation of nationalism and populism being on the rise in global politics. In recent years, the whole Western world has experienced growing populist movements that feed on nationalist or extreme ideologies on the Left or the Right. But are the strengths of anti-establishment movements abating – or are they here to stay, with a potential to grow even more? And, if so, what is fueling the current political anger that has driven all too many people into the hands of the extremes and the nationalist?
