The first part of this course is a pre-recorded lecture, found using this link.

For the second part of this course, the audience has until Monday 10/19 to email their questions/comments to Mert Kartal at who will respond to people individually rather than recording his answers in another recording.

Description: This course is designed to introduce two separate (but unavoidably related) symptoms of populism in Europe. In a sixty-minute pre-recorded lecture, we will focus on (i) the impact of “Syrian refugee flows” on European politics, and (ii) the causes and (potential) consequences of “Brexit.” Upon completing the lecture, you have the opportunity to send your questions/comments to the presenter, who will correspond with you individually.

Dr. Mert Kartal earned his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2014 and served as an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point for five years. In 2019, he was a guest researcher at the University of Gothenburg’s Quality of Government Institute. His research focuses on international organizations and good governance. As assistant professor of government at St. Lawrence, he teaches courses on international relations, the European Union, and political corruption.
