Workshop: The Liberal Order in Crisis, Timm Beichelt, Michael Minkenberg, Jürgen Neyer, Frankfurt (Oder), European University Viadrina (please register)

1 June 20182 June 2018

The liberal European order is under siege. Its normative foundations are challenged by various radical parties and movements. Many of its policies are contested and criticized as inefficient, ineffective and hypocritical. Liberal democracy, human rights and open markets are no longer taken for granted but must today be justified and defended in the public arena. Some even fear that the 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 and how deep is Europe’s crisis? Is it part of a global process and similar in kind to authoritarian tendencies in US, Russia and Turkey? Are we even witnessing the end of post-war liberalism and is the idea of the open society slowly being replaced by a new combination of traditionalism, authoritarianism and nationalism?
The workshp is organized by Timm Beichelt, Michael Minkenberg and Jürgen Neyer and will take place at the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) from June 1-2, 2018. It is open to arguments form all areas of social sciences and the humanities. Limited funds for reimbursing costs of travel and accommodation are available.
Students, Researchers and Employees of the Viadrina are invited to attend the workshop as auditors. Registration is requested via mail to: workshop-populism@europa-uni.de
