How do populism and nationalism challenge democracy? Can they instead help to sustain it? This panel explores the causes of the global populist upsurge, from popular discontent to economic shocks. Nationalism and populism are powerful, compatible, and resonant ideologies. As a result, they can legitimate leaders and mobilize citizens – and pose dramatic challenges to liberal democracy.

Panel discussion featuring 2018-19 CASBS fellows Eva Anduiza, Bart Bonikowski, and Maya Tudor.

Guest moderator: Anna Grzymala-Busse, Director, Global Populisms Project, The Europe Center, Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, Stanford University
