The past ten years have seen a rise and consolidation in the support for right-wing populist movements and parties in Germany, Sweden and Denmark. This is reflected increasingly in parliaments and governments alike. This poses a series of challenges to the parties of the Left and in broader terms to central values in liberal democracy.
The anthology “Don’t Panic – Analysis and Strategy on Right-Wing Populism” presents three examinations of the developments in far-right populism, three analyses of the strategies and tactics deployed by the Left to counter far-right influence, and three visions for building a stronger Left.
Contributions from: political scientist Carina Book; associate professor Susi Meret and postdoc Anita Nissen; anti-fascist researcher Mathias Våg; member of the Danish parliament for Enhedslisten Rosa Lund; institute director and doctor Håkan Blomqvist; senior advisor Anika Taschke; party secretary of Vänsterpartiet Aron Etzler; policy advisor in Die Linke Kerstin Wolter; and historian Esben Bøgh Sørensen.
Meet three of the authors for a transnational online debate. The event is moderated by editor of the book and general secretary in DEO Rasmus Nørlem Sørensen.
