Great Decisions: The Rise of Populism in Europe

Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. Developed by the Foreign Policy Association, the program intends to engage communities and broaden public involvement in foreign affairs.  The Foreign Policy Association provides background information and policy options for the eight most critical issues facing America each year. Participants will view a related dvd and then participate in a discussion, led by Barbara Krebs of the League of Women Voters.

A briefing book is available at the library for check out or purchase.  The group meets on Thursday evenings February 7 through March 28, from 6:30-8:30 pm in the Montrose Library Meeting Room.

  February 28, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

  The Rise of Populism in Europe

Mass migration, and the problems associated with it, have directly abetted the rise of populist parties in Europe. Opposition to immigration was the prime driver of support for Brexit, it brought a far-right party to the German Bundestag for the first time since the 1950s, and propelled Marine Le Pen to win a third of the vote in the French presidential election. In addition to calling for stronger borders, however, these parties are invariably illiberal, anti-American, anti-NATO and pro-Kremlin, making their rise a matter of serious concern for the national security interests of the United States.
