Hertie School | Germany, UK, France: Lessons from an unsettling European election year
Panel discussion | Germany, UK, France: Lessons from an unsettling European election year
In Germany, the UK, France and other parts of Europe, populism has played a pivotal role in elections this year. Mainstream parties and candidates faced a rising tide of populist movements with mixed success. For now, this spells a temporary reprieve for the custodians of free and open democracies, but nationalist, anti-immigrant and anti-EU parties are sure to persist. What are the lessons from the recent elections, and what steps must European leaders take to fend off illiberal policies and populist movements in the future?
Panel discussions with Iain Begg (LSE), Janis A. Emmanouilidis (European Policy Center), Baroness Falkner of Margravine (Member of the House of Lords, UK), Sylvie Goulard (Former Member of European Parliament), Claus Offe (Hertie School), Jean Pisani-Ferry (Hertie School), Andrea Römmele (Hertie School), and Sylke Tempel (German Council on Foreign Relations).
The event will be followed by a reception.
