Research Fellow of the University of Zurich Delivered a Lecture on Contemporary Political Populism in Europe

On October 2, 2014 Philipp Casula, Senior Research Fellow of the History and Middle East Studies Department at the University of Zurich delivered a lecture on ‘Contemporary Political Populism in Europe’. The event was organized by the Department of Applied Political Science.

Abstract

While most political observers would seem to agree that populism is on the rise in the whole of Western Europe, there is deep disagreement in the academia about what populism actually is. This brief presentation will introduce three possible definitions of populism, putting at the centre the formal conception that Ernesto Laclau has advanced in his latest writings. It will highlight its analytical and political pros and cons and specifically highlight the precarious relationship between democracy and populism.

After the lecture students and lecturers discussed plans for international cooperation between the universities.
