(De)Globalization and Development in the New Age of Populisms Workshop


Please join us for an interdisciplinary discussion about the timely and pressing topic of current 'anti-globalization', and 'post-globalization' trends in the context of populism, and their impact on development!

The evening will feature talks by two internationally highly acclaimed experts:

Professor Dibyesh Anand from University of Westminster, who will be speaking on 'In the Name of the People: Is China an Exception to the Global Wave of Populism?'.

Dr Erica Simone A. Resende from the Brazilian War College, who will be speaking on 'Right and Left-wing Populisms: Two stories about Reclaiming Sovereignty from Globalization'

The speakers will be followed by a panel discussion amongst a range of international experts on the topic, as well as an open forum discussion.

The questions that the workshop will address include:

- Is the current populist trend an expression of lack of confidence in globalisation?

- What are the consequences of populist governments for development policies/processes?

- How are different states and social movements reinterpreting globalization-de/globalization trends?

- How have the politics of identity shifted in light of these trends?

- What are the sources of current heightened opposition to increased global transactions and interdependencies, as well the associated global governance?

- What strategies of 're-globalization' are available, including reform and transformation of the rules and institutions that govern the global political economy?

- How has violence been normalised in this new age of anti-globalisation and right-wing politics?

- In particular, how can inclusive democratic citizenship and sovereignty obtain due voice and influence in a revitalized global cooperation both in the global south and north?

All are welcome!

Lecturer: Confirmed Keynote speakers: Dr. Dibyesh Anand, University of Westminster. Dr. Erica Simone A. Resende, Escola Superior de Guerra, Brazil.
