MW Lecture with Prof. Nadia Urbinati (Columbia University) - The Populist Ambition

Dates:
  • Wed 15 Jan 2020 17.00 - 18.30
  Add to Calendar 2020-01-15 17:00 2020-01-15 18:30 Europe/Paris MW Lecture with Prof. Nadia Urbinati (Columbia University) - The Populist Ambition

The lecture is devoted to the examination of populism as the construction of a new kind of representative government. A populist democracy promised is the form representative democracy can take in the age of the empire of the audience, in which horizontal networks of communication and transient movements shatter political associations and make politics a terrain of conquest by leaders, whose representative claim relies on the verdict of the audience and the daily communication with the people. Direct representation within electoral democracy: this seemingly oxymoron is the physiognomic of a populist form of democracy.  

Johann Justus Vasel (MW LAW Fellow) will introduce and chair the Lecture.
