The phenomenon of extreme nationalism, conservatism and anti-globalization which has gripped the world of late has been brewing for at least a decade, and some would say for several decades. From the anti-immigration rhetoric in Europe and the U.S., to Brexit, to the 2017 U.S. presidential elections, we have witnessed jolting examples of these trends. We intend to discuss the loss of control which some portions of society are feeling in countries like the UK and U.S., and moves toward conservatism we are seeing in other parts of the world – Turkey, the Philippines, Eastern Europe. We will be considering the causes leading up to these movements, the role that globalization has played, as well as ways governments can counter these trends. Co-sponsored by the Hertie School of Governance.
