abstract

Teil der Reihe/part of serie: MIDEM-Lecture Series POPULISMUS

In the context of his "European Populism Tour" MIDEM welcomes Prof. Dr. Cas Mudde.


Growing up in the Netherlands, SPIA Professor Cas Mudde never understood why the small amount of radical right political activity was so pervasive in the news. Why was everyone on high-alert over something so small? Recently, as the alert has reached new heights, Mudde’s research focuses on one question: how can liberal democracy defend itself against political challenges without undermining its core values?


Mudde, who began working at SPIA in 2012, examines threats from the far-right, far-left, religious terrorism as well as from states – a timely topic that has helped his work gain considerable media attention. His recent examination of the divisive U.S. election’s implications has led to his work being featured inThe Guardian,Foreign AffairsandThe Huffington Post, among others.
