2019 KLINGEMANN LECTURE: PROF. DR. PIPPA NORRIS (HAVARD UNIVERSITY UND UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY)
Die "Hans-Dieter Klingemann Lecture 2019" wird am 4. Juli von Prof. Dr. Pippa Norris (Havard University and University of Sydney) gehalten. Raum: HS 5 Zeit: 12:00-13:30Uhr
Prof. Dr. Pippa Norris referiert zu folgendem Thema “Cultural Backlash and the Rise of Authoritarian Populism”.
Abstract: Rising voting support for parties blending populist and authoritarian appeals has disrupted mainstream party competition in many European societies – and had major consequences worldwide. What explains this phenomenon? The study theorizes that an important part of any explanation lies in perceived cultural threats, where rapid and profound value change in post-industrial societies during recent decades have affected core feelings of social identity, wrapped around values of family, faith and nation. These developments have generated a ‘cultural backlash’ activating authoritarian values and voting support for populist parties with authoritarian policy positions, especially among older and non-college educated citizens.
To consider these issues, Part I develops the conceptual and theoretical framework. Part II estimates the ideological position of all European political parties on Authoritarian and Populist indexes, from expert CHES data. We also operationalize and measures Authoritarian and Populist values in the mass electorate, from the pooled European Social Survey 2002-2014. Part III uses multilevel models to examine the links between values and votes. The conclusion summarizes the key findings and considers their implications.

Workshop on the ECPR@50, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the European Consortium of Political Research. The event will be held from 3-4 June 2019 at the European University Institute, Fiesole. The talk will present a paper on “Political science cultures: Academic values, roles and experiences.” based on a new survey of political scientists.
In recent years, many Western countries have witnessed the affirmation of political cultures that oppose the people to the elite and which call for protectionism and the restoration of national sovereignty. At international level, the abandonment of multilateralism is advocated in the name of bilateralism, considering the supranational institutions instituted after the Second World War to be useless or harmful.
What explains these developments? This question will be at the center of the next edition of the Trento Economics Festival, from 30 May to 2 June 2019.

IPSA World Congress 21-25 July 2018
IPSA World Congress Brisbane panel on Elections and Democratic Attitudes Monday 23 July 2018 3.15-5.30pm
The COST Action network brings together researchers to investigate populist political communication and its impact on democratic political life across Europe. The keynote address will present from the forthcoming Norris-Inglehart book on Cultural Backlash.
This symposium seeks to bring together scholars from Europe and America to consider populism and its relationship to the contemporary communication ecology.
Populist challengers have disrupted long established patterns of party competition in many contemporary Western societies, as exemplified by Donald Trump in the US, Marine Le Pen in France, Nigel Farage in the UK, and Geert Wilders in the Netherlands.
The project for a new book Cultural Backlash seeks to analyse the phenomenon of Populist-Authoritarianism and its mass appeal as a style of governance which threatens progressive values as well as core principles and practices of liberal democracy.
