Populism is a phenomenon that has swept through Western politics. But what is the connection between populism and the far-right movements? Populists quickly manage to capture and express the sentiments and fears of a broad circle of people from political platforms. But how do they transform into Brexit or the non-liberal tendencies like the ones that have become dominant in Hungary and Poland? What constitutes a fertile ground for populism, and what are the connections between populist slogans and far-right violence?
We will discuss the limits of the political spectrum, populist calls to far-right violence, consequences of right-wing populism and opposition to it with experts after the screening of The Brink in the DOCUSPACE Online Cinema.
