Episode 17 – The Rise of Nationalism and Populism across Europe

Guest: Dr. Achim Hurrelmann, Director of the Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (EURUS) and as Associate Director of the Centre for European Studies (CES)

AboutIn recent years, nationalist views have been perceived as making a comeback in mainstream European politics. There is widespread debate over whether Europe should be open to the rest of the world and other European states or if states within it should adopt isolationist policies. During the past several years, many European states have seen far-right and nationalist parties gain increasing popularity in mainstream politics. In this episode we take a closer look at the reasons behind this rise in populism across Europe, particularly in France and the Netherlands. Join Mitch and Mel as they sit down with the Dr. Achim Hurrelmann from Carleton’s Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies.
