PPE Speaker Series: “Angry Populist Politics: Why It Is Happening and What to Do About It” with Ian Shapiro (Yale)

February 19 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm



Since 2016, there has been a dramatic erosion of support for establishment candidates and parties in favor of populist and even anti-system ones in many countries. Why? Ian Shapiro will answer that question, explain why many proposed remedies either have no effect or make things worse, and outline better responses.
