This workshop will explore the forces that produced the historic "Brexit" decision in Britain in the spring of 2016 and consider the extent to which these forces are also present in other major democracies. Clarke will take participants through some of the results of large representative national surveys conducted by him and his colleagues and will discuss the various factors responsible for the rise of populist nationalist movements such as the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) in Britain and Donald Trump's victory in the 2016 US presidential election.

According to Dr. Clarke’s important research, populism at the polls is a trend that is not likely to dissipate anytime soon. Join Dr. Clarke to discuss why this is occurring and what we can continue to expect in the future.
