Capilano Universe Lecture Series: The Popularity of Populism

Join us for another season of the Capilano Universe Lecture series!

The election of Donald Trump in 2016 generated concern amongst political scientists and liberal democrats alike. Should we also be concerned in Canada?  We will begin with an overview of what populism is, as well as its track record in Europe and Asia. We will then engage in (polite) discussion about populism in North America, and whether this phenomenon is sufficiently contagious to ‘infect’ the Canadian body politic.

Lecture by Dr. Conrad King, an instructor at Capilano University, in the Department of Political Science. His specialty is comparative politics and public policy, and he researches policy-making in Europe and Canada for the Institute for European Studies at UBC.

No registration required, but seating is limited.  Learn more about the Capilano Universe Lecture Series at www.capilanou.ca/universe
