Right-wing Populism on the rise: Progressive counter strategies for Europe – 1st conference


On the 20th of April 2016, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) together with the Representation of Lower Saxony to the EU held a seminar on the topic “Right-wing Populism on the rise: Progressive counter strategies for Europe”, in Brussels.

The seminar came as complement of the EU-wide research of FEPS on Populism in Europe with a specific focus on the Populist Radical Right. Therefore the conference depended the spectrum of the research done so far and the representation of academics, experts and politicians originating from different countries and generations prompted to re-consider current attitudes of progressives vis-à-vis Right-wing Populists as well as to get a better understanding of what sort of political challenge these movements and parties represent not only at the Member State level but also to the European Union as a whole.
