Join YPFP NY, European Horizons' NYU chapter, and the Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program & Alumni Association for a panel discussion on rising populism and illiberalism in the context of major European elections in 2017. Many EU countries, like France and Germany, are voting in elections amid a swell of populist and nationalistic feeling. Against this background are the rise of "illiberal democracies" among certain EU members, like Hungary and Poland. How will these trends play out in the election results, what do they mean for the EU, and how will they affect member countries' relationships with other major countries like the United States?
A catered reception will follow the panel discussion.
Members may RSVP by logging into their accounts.
