“Globalization, regional integration and their critics: Exploring the micro-foundations of political competition in the 21st century”
With the rise of populist parties in Europe, the Brexit referendum, and the election of Donald Trump as US president, critics of migration, globalization, and regional integration are on the upswing worldwide. This lecture series, organized by MEDAM researcher Esther Ademmer, deals with the manifestations, causes, and consequences of these developments, and asks how they are connected to changes in political conflicts in modern democracies. The focus is particularly on the micro-foundation of these processes: Do citizens increasingly feel that they belong to new social lines of conflict that run across the classical right-left pattern? And which role do social media play in political conflicts?
