The Laboratory for Comparative Social Research and Department of Sociology of the Higher School of Economics – Saint Petersburg invite you to visit the International Workshop “Social Inequality and Value Polarization: A Cross-Country Perspective” which will be held on September, 16-18, 2019 in Saint Petersburg.
The workshop will focus on the reasons and consequences of the rising popularity of nationalist, anti-emigrant, and populist parties in Europe and Russia. The parties representing the ‘far right’ and ‘far left’ political interests have recently gained larger support at the national parliaments of Europe and the European Parliament elections.
Is there a systemic shift towards conservatism that cuts across the established political party systems in all the regions of Europe? Is the rise of populist parties a sign of disappointment with politics or a leverage for the far-right parties? What are the social reasons for the growing support of anti-immigrant nationalist parties and what would be its social consequences? The speakers will discuss these and other issues in a cross-national perspective.
Main topics of the workshop:
Christian Welzel (LCSR HSE, University of Leuphana),
Hanspeter Kriesi (LCSR HSE, European University Institute in Florence),
Malcolm Fairbrother (Umeå University, Institute for Futures Studies, Sweden),
Amy Alexander (University of Gothenburg),
Andreas Bågenholm (University of Gothenburg)
