Event details

How can we explain the rise of populism, and how do recent waves of populism across Europe and Latin America differ from what we've seen in the past? Prof Peruzzotti's lecture will discuss these questions, and use cross-regional perspectives to look at the limitations that current populist movements are facing in old and new democracies.

This lecture will be chaired by Professor Pia Riggirozzi, Head of Politics and International Relations, Professor of Global Politics at the University of Southampton.
