EVENT | Right-Wing Populism: The Latest Anti-Worker Agenda?

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in cooperation with the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor at Georgetown University invite you to an online discussion on Wednesday, March 24, 2021 • 11:00AM - 12:30PM EDT

From Argentina, Brazil and the United States to Germany, France, Italy, and Poland, a resurgence of far-right parties has roiled American and European politics in the past decade, both in opposition and in government. Forces and ideologies that until recently seemed dated and stigmatized have presented unique challenges to labor unions and progressives - on the one hand serving as an existential threat, while at the same time holding broad appeal to some traditional unionist communities.

How can the labor movement best understand this present danger and how should union leaders, members, and activists respond? This online panel will bring together esteemed international experts and activists in discussion.
