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 will have the option to send your questions/comments to the presenter, who will then record another session to address these questions/comments.

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.
