The End Of the Liberal Order?

The End Of the Liberal Order? Central, East, and Southeast European Populism in Comparative Perspective

Vierte Jahreskonferenz der Graduiertenschule für Ost- und Südosteuropa

Die vierte Jahreskonferenz der Graduiertenschule für Ost- und Südosteuropastudien (GS OSES) wird sich vom 1. bis 3. Juni 2017 in Regensburg mit dem Phänomen des Populismus in Mittel-, Ost- und Südosteuropa beschäftigen. Renommierte, internationale Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler verschiedener Fachdisziplinen stellen ihre Forschungen zu diesem Themenfeld vor und diskutieren in vergleichender Perspektive Hintergründe, Formen und Strategien populistischer Strömungen in Geschichte und Gegenwart. Die Tagung mit dem Titel „The End Of the Liberal Order? Central, East, and Southeast European Populism in Comparative Perspective“ findet in Kooperation mit der School of Slavonic and East European Studies des University College London (UCL SSEES) statt.

In insgesamt vier englischsprachigen, wissenschaftlichen Vortragspanels sowie in einer deutsch-sprachigen, stadtöffentlichen Diskussionsrunde mit Journalisten sollen im Rahmen der Tagung unterschiedliche Aspekte des Populismus in Mittel-, Ost- und Südosteuropa eingehender betrachtet werden: populistische Sprache und Sprechweisen; Typologien populistischer Politik; historische Entwicklungslinien des Populismus in der Region; populistische Subjektivität(en).

Als Keynote-Speaker haben zugesagt: der Autor und Journalist John B. Judis (Washington), der Medienwissenschaftler Prof. Dr. Michał Krzyżanowski (Örebro), der Slavist und Direktor der UCL SSEES Prof. Jan Kubik (London) sowie die Politikwissenschaftlerin und Direktorin des neuen Zentrums für Osteuropa- und internationale Studien (ZOiS) Prof. Dr. Gwendolyn Sasse (Berlin).

Die stadtöffentliche Diskussionsrunde „Das Ende der liberalen Ordnung? Zentral-, Ost- und Südosteuropäischer Populismus im Vergleich“ am Freitagabend bestreiten die Journalisten Andreas Ernst (Belgrad / Zürich), Boris Schumatsky (Berlin) und Reinhold Vetter (Warschau / Berlin); es moderiert Marie-Janine Calic (München).

Tagungssprache wird Englisch sein. Die öffentliche Diskussion am Freitagabend wird in deutscher Sprache geführt.

Verantwortliche Organisatoren der Konferenz sind: Prof. Dr. Ulf Brunnbauer, Prof. Dr. Ger Duijzings und Prof. Dr. Björn Hansen

CONCEPT

The dream of a united Europe seems to be on the ropes. Anti-EU platforms are on the rise, producing the first major faits accomplis such as Brexit.

Hungary and Poland are governed by parties that portray Brussels as a second Moscow and oppose the European federalist ideal. Arguably, the most shocking event in this development is the election of a right-wing populist as President of the United States. The big-tent parties in Europe, which have so far maintained the post-war liberal order, have found no effective antidote to the wave of populism. In the post-socialist countries, the democratic achievements since 1989 seem under threat by policies that draw a clear line between “us” and “them”, foster hatred and offer easy solutions to complex problems. However, populism also indicates wide-spread frustration about inequality and alienation under the current capitalist system.

This year’s conference of the Graduate School, organized jointly with the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES, UCL) will put populism in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe in perspective: it will draw comparisons with other regions of the world and elucidate the contexts of populist politics. The four panels of this interdisciplinary conference will engage with the languages of populism; the typologies of populist politics; the historical trajectories of populism in the region; and populist subjectivities. In a public roundtable, journalists reporting from the region will discuss the causes and likely consequences of populist politics (in German). The keynote speakers are: John B. Judis, Michał Krzyzanowski, Jan Kubik and Gwendolyn Sasse.
