The Rise of Nationalism

Event Closed

More Details

The rising tide of nationalism has transformed world politics in recent years, with Brexit—widely seen as a rejection of the liberal internationalist consensus—and a new breed of hardline leaders including Donald Trump, Rodrigo Duterte and Narendra Modi surfing a populist wave to power. Should we feel threatened by this new nationalist landscape, which many fear twists religion and race for its own ends, or are voters justified in rejecting globalisation and reclaiming sovereignty? Author Pankaj Mishra, novelist Kamila Shamsie, and Financial Times journalist Ben Bland explore this issue with moderator Ilaria Maria Sala.
