Populism: A Phoenix Rising from the Ashes!

Live Issues Live

Are we witnessing the end of the multilateral and liberal order in trade, human rights and other domains of international policy-making?

With self-declared “populist” leaders being elected in North and South America as well as Europe and Asia, and autocrats concentrating more and more power through military “coups” in the Middle East and beyond, the very possibility of defending “constitutional democracy” around the world is at risk.

The panelists will interrogate the extent to which these processes represent real threats to constitutional democracies, and explain some of the root causes behind these worldwide trends. They will also question the effects that these domestic changes may have on the multilateral and liberal international order, which many commentators saw as triumphant at the end of the Cold War.
