The Illiberal Disruption: Temporary Detour or Historical Turning Point?

MIA Lecture with Professor Charles Kupchan

Friday, 24th May 2019, 5.15 pm, room 09-012
followed by an Apéro

Dr. Kupchan will address the surge in populism and illiberal politics on both sides of the Atlantic. Putting particular emphasis on President Trump‘s „America First“ conception of the U.S. role in the world, he will discuss the sources of populism, its ideological appeal, and how long this populist era is likely to last. Kupchan will also explore the implications of the West‘s illiberal turn for global geopolitics.
