A New Populism
The World Transformed

Add to calendar

We are in a populist moment, with neoliberalism in crisis and people all over the world turning against elite. Does this lead to the politics of Trump, as many on the centre say? Or does it offer an opportunity to unite people around demands for progressive change, as some on the left argue? Discussing this will be renowned political thinker Chantal Mouffe, whose work on populism has influenced political parties across Europe, and Jon Trickett MP, Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office and a driving force behind the Corbyn Project.
