Yale International Alliance is honored to sponsor In Conversation with Professor Nicolas Shumway on the Challenges of Contemporary Populism.
What defines populism? What underpins the rise in contemporary populist movements? How big a threat is today’s populism to liberal democracy? These are the questions addressed by Professor Nicolas Shumway during his conversation with Sofia del Carril.
This is a hybrid event, taking place at the Universidad de San Andrés with the possibility to connect virtually.
