Brexit, Trump and the challenges of populism and authoritarianism in 2017: responses from the arts and humanities

Allan Little, the renowned BBC broadcaster and a member of IASH's Advisory Board, will lead this session (which will also be open to the public) convening a panel of academics and thinkers who will probe the contribution of thinking from their disciplines and interdisciplinary fields to understanding better the challenges faced by liberal pluralist democracies and multicultural societies today. How can we best understand how political movements such as populism and nationalism can construct insiders and outsiders, and what might be the consequences for democracy in the future? Panelists: Professor Juliet Kaarbo, University of Edinburgh Dr Scott Hames, University of Stirling Dr Keith Williams, University of Dundee Dr Harry Weeks, University of Edinburgh Laura Wise, Global Justice Academy, University of Edinburgh
