Description

The second Aronson Center for International Studies Conference is titled "Populism, Multicultural Identity, and the Future of Europe."

A one-day symposium featuring world-renowned scholars, authors, and policymakers from both the U.S. and Europe, the event is aimed at addressing questions on the future of European identity and political organization. In the context of a rise in global populist movements, the symposium will focus particularly on recent and upcoming elections, trends toward illiberalism, the rise of far-right and far-left populist parties, and treatment of minority groups, including xenophobia, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism. The symposium will feature presentations by, among others, Boris Dittrich, former member of the Dutch Parliament and current director of LGBT advocacy at Human Rights Watch, and Peter Schechter, senior vice president of the Atlantic Council. JHU undergraduates currently engaged in relevant research will also present.
