The Rise of Populism and Its Effect on the International Order
WHEN Wednesday | 27 Oct, 12:00 PM-1:00 PM
WHERE Zoom online
In recent years, populists have come to power and formed governments in different parts of the world, from Brazil to Turkey, from Hungary to India, from Mexico to the Philippines. This talk will explore some of the consequences that the global rise of populism has had for international affairs. While several populists have challenged the core principles of the so-called liberal international order, they have pursued a variety of approaches when it comes to global governance, multilateralism, or bilateral relations with important partners. Based on insights from an ongoing comparative research project, the talk will discuss possible explanations for such variation.
Sandra Destradi is Professor of Political Science with focus on International Relations at Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, in Germany. She is the author or co-author of numerous studies concerning populism and foreign policy, emerging powers in world politics, and global governance and the global south.
