Across the globe, right-wing populist movements are on the rise. The likes of Trump in the US, Duterte in the Philippines, Orbán in Hungary, Erdoğan in Turkey – leaders with anti-democratic agendas and dangerous rhetoric - are ascending to power. What are the implications? For geopolitics? Minority rights? Carolin Emcke (Against Hate), Nancy MacLean (Democracy in Chains) and Jeff Sparrow (Trigger Warnings) bring perspectives from Europe, America and the Asia-Pacific.
Chair: Dominic Knight
