Pippa Norris will be speaking about ‘Cultural Backlash: The Rise of Populist Authoritarianism’ on Wednesday 6 December in room G.01 in Tower 1, LSE, London, UK. This event is co-hosted by ASEN and LSE Department of Government.

Populist challengers have disrupted long established patterns of party competition in many contemporary Western societies, as exemplified by Donald Trump in the US, Marine Le Pen in France, Nigel Farage in the UK, and Geert Wilders in the Netherlands.

This project for a new book Cultural Backlash seeks to analyze the phenomenon of Populist-Authoritarianism and its mass appeal as a style of governance which threatens progressive values as well as core principles and practices of liberal democracy.

Come along to the lecture to hear more. Entry is free, open to all, and allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Pippa Norris is the Paul F. McGuire Lecturer in Comparative Politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, ARC Laureate Fellow and Professor of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney, and Director of the Electoral Integrity Project.
