Mass migration, and the problems associated with it, have directly contributed to the rise of populist parties in Europe. Opposition to immigration was the prime driver of support for Brexit, it brought a far-right party to the German Bundestag for the first time since the 1950s, and propelled Marine Le Pen to win a third of the vote in the French presidential election. Prof David Coury (Humanities, German, and Global Studies) will give a talk about the Rise of Right-wing Populism in Europe and its causes and consequences.
