Workshop: ‘Populism, Nationalism and Democratic Backsliding’ with Milada Vachudova

October 3, 2019 at 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join the Center for European Studies for this workshop with Milada Vachudova, associate professor in the Department of Political Science, which focuses on trying to understand how the EU shapes the quality of democracy in existing and candidate states at this difficult crossroads in its history – and how Russia and even the United States may be pulling them in a different, more authoritarian direction. It is also to unpack one of the key drivers of domestic political change: when and why political parties change positions, and when those changes lead to polarization that in turn undermines both the quality of democracy and support for European integration and democratic values.

These events are co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, the Curriculum in Global Studies and the Chancellor’s Education Fund.
