Book Launch: The Power of Populism and People
October 22, 2021 | 11:00am - 12:00pm EDT

Is civil resistance dead? The recent advance in authoritarian rule in countries around the globe has been met by a rise in popular mobilization. In nation states, strongmen have mobilized masses to form their base of power, while on the streets civil courage has led to the rise of protests against tyranny. Four authors of a new book, Power of Populism and People, examine the power relationship between peoples and their rulers - how regimes co-opt people power and the success and failures of popular, collective opposition.

Panelists:
Grzegorz Ekiert (Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Government at Harvard University, Director of the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies, and Senior Scholar at the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies)
Federico Finchelstein (Professor of History at the New School for Social Research)
Diana Fu (Associate Professor of Political Science and Director of the East Asian Seminar Series at the Asian Institute, Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, University of Toronto)
Adam Roberts (Senior Research Fellow in International Relations at Oxford University and Emeritus Fellow of Balliol College, Oxford)

Moderator:
Nathan Stoltzfus (Historian of modern Germany and the Rintels Professor of Holocaust Studies at Florida State University)

Organized by the East Asian Seminar Series at the Asian Institute, Munk School, University of Toronto and co-sponsored by the Center for the Advancement of Human Rights, Florida State University.
