February 12: Democracy on the Run: Dispatches from Eastern Europe
Carol Schaeffer, freelance journalist
Illiberalism across the globe is on the rise. Perhaps most alarming is its rise in Europe, especially considering the weight of its 20th century history. Eastern European countries in particular are exhibiting a turn towards fascism both on the social level and that of the party politic. The turn towards global illiberalism may seem like a sudden shift, but to understand its origins (and its future), it is best to examine its prominence in Eastern European nations. A journalist whose work has been featured in The Atlantic, The Nation, The Intercept and other news sources, Carol Schaeffer will discuss this growing trend.
