“Populism” has claimed enormous amounts of popular and press attention, with the Brexit vote of 2016, the election of President Donald J. Trump, and the rise of self-proclaimed populists in Europe and elsewhere. But what exactly is populism? And is populism in Poland the same phenomenon as in the United States? Does populism have the same set of universal causes, or are there many paths to populist resurgence?
This panel discussion will feature the four co-authors of the recent white paper “Global Populisms and Their Challenges,” which finds that established mainstream political parties are the key enablers of populist challenges—and the key solution.
Join the report's co-authors Anna Grzymala-Busse, Didi Kuo, Francis Fukuyama and Michael McFaul as they explain the nature of the threat and potential solutions for the rise of global populism. They will also present some of the findings from the Global Populisms project at Stanford University.
