An FPRI Event: Authoritarianism in Europe in the 20th Century- and the 21st

June 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

This event is part of the FPRI* ongoing series Geopolitics with Granieri

Geopolitics with Granieri features a conversation – some might say an interrogation – with guest scholars on subjects in the news. Moderated by FPRI’s RON GRANIERI each session draws upon FPRI’s vast network of scholars and outside experts to elicit a broader understanding of the geographical, political, and historical context of current events. This uniquely interactive program, produced in front of a live audience, offers real substance and emphasizes active audience participation from both the studio and the live YouTube audience.
*Foreign Policy Research Institute

In this session, our guest is Sheri E. Berman, professor of political science at Barnard College. Berman’s main interests are European politics and political history, democracy and democratization, globalization, and the history of the left. Her two books have examined the role played by social democracy in determining political outcomes in 20th-century Europe. Her book Democracy and Dictatorship in Europe: From the Ancien Regime to the Present Day is forthcoming from Oxford University Press.

Drawing on her book in progress, Berman will discuss the recent rise of populism and authoritarianism in Europe, with a look back at the authoritarian movements of the 20th century. She is also the author of The Primacy of Politics: Social Democracy and the Making of Europe’s Twentieth Century, and publishes regularly in Foreign Affairs, The Washington Post, and the Journal of Democracy. She received her Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University.

Registration begins at 6:15 pm, with the program to follow from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
