Keynote #2: The Great Pushback with Jan Kubik

Friday September 30th, 18:00 CET

Do inequality, perceptions and economic insecurity usher in political populism? According to Karl Polanyi, in marketization, economic activities are not controlled by society, which leads to the establishment of fictitious commodities, such as money, land and labour. In our closing keynote Jan Kubik (Professor of Slavonic and East European Studies at UCL, Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University) explores these fundamental shifts to illustrate the great emergence of populist parties in Central and Eastern Europe.
