Event Description

Full Description:
The year 2016 has turned out to be a year of surprise election results in the English speaking world, with Pauline Hanson making a comeback in Australia, British voters choosing to leave the European Union and U.S. voters choosing Donald Trump as their next President. Although recent elections results in the Netherlands and France have been interpreted by some as ‘bucking the trend’, recent events in the USA and the UK suggest that the Populist Zeitgeist is far from over. But what does all this mean? Will this be a temporary craze, or is the populist genie out of the bottle for good? Is this a global trend, or one affecting different countries in different ways? Who supports populist parties? And does the rise of populism threaten to dismantle democratic institutions? Our panel of experts will address these and other questions.
Panelists The Hon Paul Lucas, Dr Duncan McDonnell, A/Prof Jacinta O'Hagan and Dr Frank Mols
