About

In the last few years, populism has been on the rise in Europe, across East and West. In some countries the nationalist right-wing populist parties have gained power, whereas in others they have emerged on the fringes of mainstream politics. Xenophobic and outright racist movements are becoming more visible and vocal and seemingly threatening democracy. Yet elsewhere, left-wing movements are mobilizing against this development, arguing that there are other forms of populism: less reactionary, more inclusive and with the potential to reinvigorate democracy. Recent years have also seen a rise in women's and feminist mobilization against a current resurgence of "traditional values", anti-feminist backlash and authoritarianism. In light of this, is it safe to say that we live in a time of increased political polarization?

This and other topical questions will be the subject of lectures and discussions during the two weeks of the CBSS Summer University 2018 on two sides of the Baltic Sea, in Sweden and Poland.

The course “Populism and Radical Politics, Across East and West, Right and Left” deals with populism and radical politics across the political spectrum both theoretically and empirically. Particular attention is paid to the European post-1989 context within Baltic, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as the larger transnational and global cultural, economic and political developments within which these movements have emerged. The actual learning process will be enhanced by travel from Stockholm to the birthplace of Solidarity – Gdańsk, as well as teaching in action during guided tours and trips, small study groups and informal learning during leisure activities.
