You are invited to discuss Brexit and Trump in the context of populism and inequality at this event hosted by NISR on 5th December.

In 2016, two seismic political events have come to be associated with each other as evidence that our democratic systems are being transformed. At the same time, there have been links drawn between the two with regards to populism: the belief that the people can overturn the power of “elites”.

After the UK voted to leave the European Union and Donald Trump was elected as US President, what conclusions can be drawn about inequality and its effect on democracy? At this event, the Institute for Social Renewal hosts a lunchtime discussion as follow-up to “Research Agendas Post-Brexit”: exploring how Newcastle University research speaks into this context of rapid transformational change.
