GOVT 81.16 The Rise of Populism in Europe

Populist parties have emerged as a significant force in European politics. Across western and central Europe, anti-immigrant parties have entered governing coalitions and accelerated the decline of mainstream parties. In southern Europe, radical left-wing parties have increasingly challenged the legitimacy of the European Union. This seminar will examine the political, economic, and cultural factors driving the unprecedented success of populist parties. In doing so, we will grapple with a range of significant challenges facing liberal democracies, ranging from the consequences of immigration and diversity to economic stagnation and representational deficits.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
