Speaker: Tom Pepinsky, professor of government at Cornell University,
Populists in East and Southeast Asia generally refrain from invoking anti-migrant and anti-minority sentiments as part of their mobilizational strategies. This differentiates them from “exclusionary” populists in Europe, even though many Southeast Asian countries are diverse societies with long histories of migration and ethnic chauvinism. This talk will use the experiences of East and Southeast Asia to explore the varieties of populism across the world, focusing on how nationalist mobilization and mass incorporation shape popular identity, membership, and populists' strategies in contemporary democracies.
Sponsors and partners: Office of Equity and Campus Diversity, Geography and Planning Department, Cornell University Southeast Asia Program.
