WHITESHIFT: POPULISM, IMMIGRATION AND THE FUTURE OF WHITE MAJORITIES

Institutional and Political Issues
Date: Wednesday, 10 July 2019 16:00 - 18:00

Venue: CEPS

At the next MEDAM Seminar, Eric Kaufmann will present his most recent book Whiteshift: Populism, Immigration and the Future of White Majorities. Eric Kaufmann is Professor of Politics at Birkbeck College, University of London. A Canadian citizen, Eric holds a Ph.D. from the London School of Economics. Prior to Whiteshift, he has published acclaimed books on the history of Northern Ireland and on demography and politics in the twenty-first century.
Whiteshift argues that the current upsurge of right-wing populism in the West stems from the existential plight of white majorities in an age of large-scale North-South migration. Based on extensive survey, demographic and electoral data, it sets out four main white responses to ethnic change: fight, flee, repress and join. It projects the rise of mixed-race majorities in the West, but viewing this less as a futuristic end of identity than evidence for Whiteshift, the absorption of a great deal of ethno-racial difference into historic white majorities. The book makes the case for an open form of white identity, urging de-stigmatising whiteness and addressing the ‘who are we?’ and ‘where are we going?’ questions.
The presentation will be followed by a discussion of the results and possible implications.

A live stream will be available during the event.

Registration & coffee from 15.30 – Meeting from 16.00 to 18.00
