Debate: Political Extremism
03/12/2020 @ 19:00 - 20:30
Over the last few years, the political spectrum of Europe has seen an indisputable rise in extremism. Political scientists have proven that the main reason why people vote for far-right parties is their attitude towards immigration. However, on average people’s attitude has remained somewhat constant. If they haven’t become less tolerant of the influx of immigrants, then what is the reason behind the electoral successes of right-wing parties in states like Austria, Germany, Hungary, Sweden, and Switzerland? Likewise, how can the prominence of left-wing parties in Greece and Spain be explained? Will this trend divide Europe, or is there of a way of balancing conflicting views?
The Debate Committee wants to explore the complexity of this topic with you! Join us for our debate “Political Extremism: How will these radical ideologies shape Europe?” on the 3rd of December from 19:00 on Zoom for a chance to engage in intriguing dialogues and to gain insight into what experts have to say about the implications of political extremism for the future of Europe and our European Identity!
