European University Viadrina in Frankfurt

European University Viadrina in Frankfurt
The European University Viadrina in Frankfurt is hosting its well-known summer program again in 2018 with the title The Liberal Order in Crisis: Authoritarian, Radical, and Populist Challenges to Democracy in Europe.

After recent elections and political developments in Europe, the US and South America the organizers decided this year to host a program regarding „The Liberal Order in Crisis: Authoritarian, Radical, and Populist Challenges to Democracy in Europe” because the current European order seems to be under siege. Its historically established normative foundations are challenged by various radical parties and movements. Some even fear that the historical lesson-learned that peace in Europe and beyond presupposes deep political and legal integration among the EU’s member states is giving way to the lure of nationalism and parochialism. How significant are these processes in Europe of today? Are we observing processes that are similar in kind to populist authoritarianism in the US, Russia and Turkey?

Courses offered:      

  • Comparative Analysis of Recent Challenges in Europe
  • The Radical Right in Europe: A New Wave of Regime Change?
  • The Fall of European Orders from the Roman Empire Until Today
  • Comparative Constitutional Populism          
  • Concepts of Populism and Radicalism
