Join us for an interview with Dr. Cas Mudde that will contextualize the global tide of “populism” and the “far right,” their complicated relationship with “democracy,” and includes the possible scenarios of populism in a post-Trump and post-COVID world. His book Populist Radical Right Parties in Europe (Cambridge University Press, 2007) won the SteinRokkan Award for Comparative Social Science Research in 2008. His recent books include (with Cristóbal Rovira Kaltwasser) Populism: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford University Press, 2017); The Far Right Today (Polity, 2019), (with Sivan Hirsch-Hoefler); and The Israeli Settler Movement: Assessing and Explaining Social Movement Success (Cambridge University Press, 2021). Dr. Mudde is also a columnist for GuardianUS, a regular contributor to VoxEurope, and host of the podcast RADIKAAL. He tweets at @casmudde.
