Discussion Groups

May Topic: Populism in Europe and the US

May Discussion Groups will engage in a conversation on Populism in Europe and the US. A Fact Sheet prepared by the International Relations Committee defines populism as it is understood by today’s political scientists; provides a historical context for its rise; documents how it has manifested in major European nations and in the US; and clarifies its impact on US foreign policy. Add your insights to the timely and provocative conversation. Join one of the Discussion Groups listed below. Reservations are not necessary. Free and open to all.
