INTERNATIONAL FORUM
Abstract: 
Across the world, from the Philippines to here in the US, we are witnessing a terrifying rise in the number, importance, and brazenness of various strands of right-wing government. For this panel we have brought experts from Turkey, Poland, and Hungary—each struggling under the rule of an increasingly far-right regime—to discuss how and why this happened, the current state of affairs as well as state of resistance, and what lessons the rest of us can draw. This panel will double as a release event for our most recent book, "The Far Right in Government: Six Cases From Across Europe," to which all three panelists contributed pieces.
