Description/Abstract of your Event: 

Steve Bannon counseled Bolsonaro’s campaign. Germany’s AfD cooperates with US climate change deniers. Italy’s Salvini and Hungary’s Orban are preparing a far right cooperation to be elected European Parliament. Obviously, there is a far Right international arising. What do we know about their cooperation and what can progressives do to confront them? This panel will bring perspectives from Germany, Europe, the US, and Brazil to understand right wing internationalism and their networks.
