Election Hour: Strategies against Right-Wing Alliances in Italy, Sweden & the U.S.
About the Session
Italy and Sweden have seen a resurgence of far-right politics that have gained popularity through xenophobic rhetoric and inflation anger. Making the situation more dire, is how these far-right parties in Europe are beginning to coalesce with center-right parties and mainstream political movements. Ahead of the crucial Midterm elections in the US, the pressing question there is similar: how can progressives create strong movements that can electorally defeat the now mainstream Trumpist Republican party? This special election hour will explore the rise of the far-right, alliances that have empowered their claims and how progressives can offer effective and sustainable political strategies to withstand the far-right wave and win coming elections.
